Astrantia 'Claret' never fails to draw attention. Planted in our garden in combination with the dark burgundy strap leaves of Eucomis 'Oakhurst', purple-leaved heucheras and long-blooming Nepeta 'Walker's Low'. Umbels of one-inch, dark strawflowers rise up on near-black stems. These darken up best with good sun but can also be grown in dappled light. Long-lasting in cut-flower arrangements and also useful as dried flowers. A Great Plant Picks selection.

Early to midsummer.  30-36 in. x 30 in.

Wine Red flowers

Sun, Part Shade     Zones 4, 5, 6, 7
