Rosy Trio Valerian Collection (Centranthus)

Our Rosy Trio Valerian Collection (Centranthus) features a trio of tough, waterwise perennials with beautiful red, white, and pink flowers. Centranthus, also called Jupiter’s Beard or Valerian, has clusters of flowers over deep green foliage. Durable, low maintenance blooms last for the whole summer, attracting butterflies while resisting deer and rabbits. Centranthus is easy to grow and will naturalize and spread, making them perfect for cottage gardens, meadows, or hard-to-reach hillsides that you’d like to fill with rosy colors and pollinators. Prohibited in CA, WA, or OR, where it is known to behave aggressively. Collection of 9 plants.

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

Details
Our Rosy Trio Valerian Collection (Centranthus) is perfect for filling your garden or meadow with tough, low-maintenance perennials that will bloom all summer. Red, white Flowered Jupiter’s Beard, and Pink flowered Jupiter’s Beard flowers top these tall perennials. This versatile plant is equally at home as a companion plant in traditional perennial border as it is in a xeriscape or waterwise garden. It’s a great choice for a butterfly or pollinator garden, as well as helping to stabilize soil in hilly or hard-to-reach areas. Centranthus prefers well-drained soil. Once established, it thrives with minimal water and care. Too much water and rich soil are not helpful for this plant – making it perfect in difficult growing conditions or hard-to-reach gardens. Cut back in spring. Deadheading will help to reduce reseeding if you do not want them to spread too much, and it will stimulate re-flowering. Mature plants range from 24-36" tall x 24-30" wide.

This Collection includes 9 plants – 3 of each of the following:

Planting Guides
Planting and Caring for Pre-Planned Gardens & Collections

Soil Preparation: Remember that proper soil preparation is the key to healthy, vigorous blooming perennials. Use Yum Yum Mix and a high quality compost at recommended rates to prepare the soil. Inoculate the plant roots with Plant Success mycorrhizal inoculant. Planting: Plant according to the mature size of the plant. Don’t be tempted to put the plants too close based on their size in the pots. They’ll grow quickly and cover the space shown in the planting map. (Maps included only with Pre-Planned Gardens, not Collections.)

Fertilizing: Once annually in mid-fall, after plants begin to go dormant. Use Yum Yum Mix or Yum Yum Mix Winterizer at recommended rates to improve the soil and provide essential plant nutrients.Use it with high quality compost, mix half and half by volume and spread on top of the soil. Scratch it in lightly and water thoroughly. It is also beneficial to treat the plant roots with Plant Success® mycorrhizal root inoculant if you didn’t do so at planting time. (Inoculation only needs to be done once.)

Mulching: In arid climates mulching is very beneficial. Coarse textured composts, shredded leaves, pine needles and composted bark are all excellent mulch materials. Apply to a depth of 1-2 inches. Replenish annually (or as needed).
