Centranthus ruber 'Coccineus'


Jupiter's Beard or Keys of Heaven or Red Valerian Valerianaceae:

These seeds will produce nice darker shades of rose-red colored flowers. The airy heads of flowers make great cutting material. Plants will flower the first year if started early. Loved by Butterflies, long blooming with medium green, succulent, Sedum like foliage. Clump forming plants for full sun to light shade, best in soils that are neutral to slightly alkaline. In more shade they tend to be lax in habit but still flower.

Zones 4-9

Germination starts in a few day and can be spread-out over the next few weeks. Use 65F, light helps so surface sow and very thinly sprinkle some soil medium over them. The seedlings are good sized and easy to handle, but the roots resent disturbance.
