Astrantia (Masterwort, Hattie's Pincushion, Hatties Pincushion)

 Do not Feed
  • Common Name: Astrantia (Masterwort, Hattie's Pincushion, Hatties Pincushion)
  • Latin Name: Astrantia spp.
  • Family Name: Apiaceae/Umbelliferae

This plant is said to have some diuretic properties, and it also contains saponins.  So although many sources say there are no known hazards (for mammals), we have not found evidence of it being tested on reptiles and therefore we cannot recommend feeding.

 

The flower colour is mainly pink but colours do vary from white through to a purplish-pink.
