    Related to the ever-popular Astrantias, this is an attractive and unusual plant, which will thrive in any well drained soil as long as it gets lots of sun. Cloud-like umbels of tiny chartreuse flowers appear from midsummer until September above the olive-like blue-green leaves attracting a host of beneficial insects. These shrubby umbellifers are hardy but short-lived and will self-seed freely the right spot. Their colouring enhances strong purples, pinks and plums, while their airy delicacy adds movement and light to the border.

  • Garden care: Avoid cutting back the flower stems if you want them to set seed. Popular with florists they make fine long-lasting additions to fresh or dried bouquets and indoor arrangements.
