Astrantia major subsp. involucrata ‘Shaggy’

Astrantia major subsp. involucrata ‘Shaggy’ is a real winner, especially in Northern England. This species grows best in a damp, sunny spot. Blooming begins in June and continues well into October. The cultivar ‘Shaggy’ has notably larger flowers than others. These are produced plentifully throughout the blooming months.

Today I took some photos of Astrantia major subsp. involucrata ‘Shaggy’ in the garden. This plant is only a year old and is already providing a strong display. The photos are below, including a nice macro bee shot šŸ‘Œ
