Overview
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. Not recommended for coastal areas of CA, WA and OR, where it can behave aggressively. Collection of 9 plants.

Description

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.
