I drove my sweetie to his church organ-playing job on Sunday morning, and one of the congregants, Heidi, drove him home. While she was here, she toured the gardens and commented on astrantia.
"Do you want some?" i asked.
Most people have a hard time saying "Yes."
Heidi asked about sun or shade. She asked about soil. She told me about her garden. Eventually, i picked up a shovel and dug into a large patch of astrantia that desperately needed dividing. I gave her a giant clump.
I love giving plants away.
And i love dividing my perennials. A smaller clump really does look better.
