Sometimes emerging soon after Christmas, these delightful Astrantia relatives are best grown in dappled shade or sun, towards the front of border. As they are part of the Apiaceae family, the blooms are actually an umbel of tiny, small yellow flowers, surrounded by a ring of petal-like bracts. All appearing at ground level, before rising up to around 15cm high. Later in spring the lobed foliage overtakes the fading flowers.
The Hacquetia we sell are now known as Sanicula.
