Astrantia turns out to be a lot harder to find than I had imagined. Even the mail order companies are out.

Any suggestions on where to buy rose-colored bare root or plants would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Type in Astrantia in the search box. They have seeds and bareroot plants.

I love Fedco for seeds, bulbs, bareroot plants - especially for garlic!!!

"Star of Beauty’ Masterwort Astrantia major Carmine-rose rounded pincushion or buttonhead-type flowers with white centers are cupped by stars of rosy bracts. Often called Hattie’s Pincushion.
Clump-forming plant with loose basal rosettes of palmate leaves. Excellent cutflower both fresh and dried. Long bloom time—June through August.

Thrives in woodland gardens or along stream banks, and deeply resents drying out. Plant 18–24" apart in consistently moist but well-drained soil. Part sun. 20" tall. Z4. (bare-root crowns)"

Drop the photo into Pl@ntNet to identify.
Agree, leaves are very similar. I don't think it's a tree, I think plant or weed.

Agree. I don't know either.

If it turns out to be a tree, it's too close to the house. You could pot it up and bring it to a local nursery for identification. Then, if you chose, you could plant it somewhere appropriate.

I am not crazy about volunteers. My garden has a place for everything and everything in its place!
