This one has had a bit of a journey. It had finished flowering when I bought it so I planted it out and forgot to water it. I thought it must have died but it managed to put up a few shoots just in time for me to realise what it was and dig it up before we moved house. It then made the journey from Somerset to Cheshire without going missing (lots of our other pots where either emptied out by removal men or just disappeared altogether!) and is now very happily flowering in a pot on the patio.
Of course I have since discovered that we have lots of astrantia here. There are lots of white ones all around the pond. Ah well, I will enjoy mine while it flowers then plant it with its friends where hopefully it will self seed and mix in nicely.
