      Comments about High Country Gardens Centranthus ruber Coccineus:

      lovely color, many blooms, nice foliage, about 2'+ tall but not spindly looking, multiplies easily but not a nuisance plant. Gets day sun, late afternoon shade; sandy soil with some additions. after winter (15-20 deg. F) came back strong, and had multiplied.

        Just a couple of new shoots, very small even for the sale price. Plants will, unfortunately, take a couple of years to fill out.

          I bought this last summer and put it in my front garden. It did great! I had no problems with it and plan on getting several more this year to add to the garden.
