Astrantia Sunningdale (variegated)


Beautifully variegated foliage with clear cream edges, looking very imposing in a shady area.  The flowers are a pale pink with green and white bracts.  A superb spring foliage plant disliking hot summer sun, which causes it to lose the variegation.  Plant in cool moist soil in a shady border or woodland.  Variegation usually takes a season to develop in the newer foliage.

Possibly the most beautiful variegated foliage plant in spring, irresistible for garden design or flower arranging. Large, hand-shaped and pointed leaves are elegantly marked with yellow and cream. Branching stems of white, flushed-pink posy flowers are an added bonus summer-autumn.
