The name says it all: blood red flowers are held on dark stems above glossy dark green foliage. Astrantias are simultaneously subtle yet showy owing to the fine texture of their multiple florets, the colours provided by their subtending bracts and their strength in numbers as they are produced in good quantities on mature plants. ‘Bloody Mary’s’ effect is particularly bold.

*The Plant Encyclopedia is updated each year to provide a representation of the plants we offer, have offered, and may offer again. However, it is not a live inventory of our stock. Not all plants will be available at all times or in every year. Use the link above to enquire about the availability of this plant. Additionally, we carry many plants that have not yet been entered into our database so please enquire if you don’t see what you’re looking for. Plants are available only for on-site sales at our nursery in Richmond, BC, Canada or for shipping within Canada. We do not ship internationally. However, if you are visiting the nursery from afar, we can arrange for the necessary permits and paperwork for you to take plants back with you to your country.
