An A+ Planting Combination

I’ve become enamored for the second time with Astrantia major.  Over the years I’ve included it in more than one planting plan always hoping it will be deer resistant…it’s not.  This year more than any previous, the deer have devoured plants they have previously ignored–or at least left alone until later in the season.  I’m going to have to spray the three Astrantias I recently acquired for my shade garden.

Astrantia major and Astilbe sp.

My inspiration for a planting combo that I didn’t think up is this one of Astrantia major and one of the mid-height pink Astilbe.  As soon as the heat wave is over I’m putting these two ‘A’s in the garden for an A+ combo.
