Just bought an Astrantia Star of Love - spur of the moment buy - anyone know any tips for how to get the best out of it? Hoping butterflies will like it.



I believe they like semi shade but will grow in sunny places if the soil doesn't dry out too much.

I have mine in light damp shade and they do really well there. There are some self sown ones in drier shade and they grow well but not seen butterflies on them.
