I grew this Astrantia from mixed seeds. It has remained stable for three years now. The flowers are pure white but really tiny - smaller than a 5p piece, the leaves are finely serrated. Does anyone know its name, or is it a chance seedling. Thanks in advance!




Possibly Astrantia Bavarica.

Thanks sophiemears, I looked up Bavarica but, although the flower is the same in one pic, the leaves are different - (or at least in the photos on the web) all to large. it gave Bavarica's height at 1ft, this plant is max 3 to 4ins in height.I will post photo of the leaves.

Have a search for Astrantia Minor. I expect you'll find it there with a bit of luck. I love astrantias, stunning flowers which last for weeks.
