Great Masterwort Growing and Maintenance Tips

For optimal performance, astrantia demands very rich, consistantly moist soil, partial shade, and cool nighttime temperatures. It does not do well in areas with hot summer nights. In cool summer areas, astrantia will grow in full sun, but elsewhere it should be grown in partial shade.
