Astrantia Plants

Astrantia Pin Cushion

Anonymous added on August 18, 2015 | Answered

I made a rock garden to look like a rocky river bank of large white quartz and mixed colored rock. It is 2 foot square and 6 inches of drain rock covered with ground cloth and filled with premium potting soil. There is no shade and average temp. is 75 degrees 90 for up to 2 hours in summer. Some snow and lots of rain in winter. This is southwest Oregon, 25 miles from the ocean. Would astrantia, Major Hattie's pin cushion, masterwort be worth planting in this situation?
