Red Valerian (Centranthus ruber)

I love red valerian for softening the edges of lawns, patios, paths and walls, where it can cascade and froth to create a colour-saturated carpet.

Description

I love red valerian for softening the edges of lawns, patios, paths and walls, where it can cascade and froth to create a colour-saturated carpet.

It is great cut by the jugful too, for an abundant 'wild flower' arrangement.

Care Tips

Easy to grow and long flowering. Will self sow but resulting seedings may vary in colour.
