ith her charming appearance, meaningful symbolism, and allure, Astrantia is a beloved flower among flower enthusiasts worldwide. It is commonly known as the “Hattie’s pincushion”. No one knows exactly who Hattie is but the comparison with a tiny pincushion fits perfectly. With its strong stems and long vase life, this versatile flower is stunning in bouquets and floral arrangements. Astrantia is mostly used as a ‘filler’ in bouquets, but these designs from BLOOM’s show what happens when you put Astrantia in the spotlight…
