Immaculate deep ruby red flowers surrounded by papery bracts that are slightly paler in colour, held on strong stems atop deeply divided and highly ornamental deep green foliage. These beautiful flowers are cottage garden favourites and look great gracing the front of any border where their beautiful flowers can be appreciated. They also go very well with ornamental grasses, although this is a very ‘old fashioned’ colour, this is a great plant for more contemporary designs too.
Any reasonable garden soil, thrives in sun or partial shade.
As a rough guide planting Astrantia Venice as ground cover – 4 plants per square metre is adequate with a little patience, 6 will give better coverage and 9-12 will make a weed supressing carpet very quickly.
