Looks like mugwort... Possibly Artemisia vulgaris 'Oriental Limelight'
Doesn't look like the pics of astrantia...

I agree with Stone. Looks more like mugwort...astrantia leaves are more oval shaped and are not as deeply lobed as these.

Sorry, hit finished before I was actually finished. Meant to continue...I purchased this late in the season at a local nursery where it was tagged as Sunningdale. I will watch it when it grows thus coming spring and summer before I decide what it is, since I know things can be incorrectly tagged. If it is mugwort, I expect it will get taller than astrantia and of course the flowers will tell for sure.

All astrantia do not have vegetative stems, only stems with minimal foliage and then flowers. In other words, nearly every leaf originates from the base. In addition, astrantia leaves are palmately divided and have round, unwinged leaf stems (petioles) that are much longer than the leaf. The plant in question exhibits none of these features.

We'll see what happens with it in the spring. It did not bloom last year, but it also didn't get very tall. The growth was definitely from the base, but I agree the leaves look different from my other astrantia varieties. Just another reason to wish spring would come!

I agree, welcome and thank you for adding your photos to the database!

Jeanie, we don't want to loose your photo of this beautiful variegated plant so I'll move it to the The bin of unidentified photos (Holding_space) until later in the year.

Just following up - the plant was definitely NOT astrantia, it was mugwort, and I dug the whole thing up and tossed it. Thanks for questioning this; I kept a watch on it and would have had an invasive thug on my hands had I let it go. Thank You!

I am just reading along and wondering...
What ever happened to the original photo? Is it still here on ATP in the database somewhere? Thank You!

Nor do I. It's not in the Bin of Unidentified Photos and given that it's not showing up at the top of this thread I assume it's been deleted.

@dave, is there a way to locate this photo from the information below?

The image is gone. @foraygardengirl proposed its deletion on January 18th, 2015 and zuzu approved the proposal. Explanation given by foraygardengirl: "Plant identification questioned. Planted late in the season, so won't know what it is for sure until next summer."

Thank You! Sadly, a loss for all of us would-be plant identifiers.

Ah, sorry to take your time on that Dave. I forgot I had proposed deletion. Thanks much for investigating.
