Masterwort Growing and Maintenance Tips

Astrantia grows best in a rich, heavy soil, with some shade and plenty of moisture. Will tolerate full sun if consistent moisture is provided. Foliage remains more lush and flowers are more prolific with partial shade. Deadheading encourages a longer bloom time.
