Astrantia

Astrantia thrive in woodland gardens and in shaded and partial shaded beds and borders. They are fully hardy and like a moist fertile soil. Once established they will gradually spread. They require no staking and will flower for a long spell especially if not in too warm a spot. They may well flower later in the season if cut back after the first flush and they combine beautifully with Actaea, Geraniums and Heuchera. The lovely flowers are great dried too!

A very useful groundcover for tough, dry shady conditions.

A mythical thug for a shady spot where it can spread and display its fragrant white flowers in Spring. Will tolerate dry soils. It was used most effectively as ground cover in a small, shady courtyard show garden at Chelsea 2012, and can be seen in the walled garden at NT Mottisfont forming a wonderful ground cover under a fig tree.
{Cultivation}
Galium will spread quite vigorously, but it is a plant that will survive the toughest of dry shady conditions.
