During Astrantia plant trials at the Closed Loop Garden outside of Olympia, WA, 'Bo Ann' was notable for its large flowers and its pleasing, compact habit. The "flowers," which are composed of slightly ruffled, papery bracts surrounding a central umbel of small five-petalled flowers, persist for a long-time on the stem and retain their attractiveness even as their colors fade. Bees and other polinators frequent them when they are newly opened and later in the season they are visited by birds. The foliage of Astrantia is lobed in a similar fashion to hardy geraniums and is bold and somewhat rugged in appearance.

Early to midsummer.  18 in. x 18 in.
