Buy Centranthus ruber 'Albus' valerian: Tolerates coastal conditions

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: well-drained, neutral to alkaline
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: May to October
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    This free-flowering perennial has slightly fleshy blue-green leaves on upright stems, topped with sweetly scented, off white flowers with a pinkish tinge from late spring. Cut back after flowering to encourage a second flush.

  • Garden care: Deadhead regularly throughout the summer to prolong flowering. In autumn cut the plant back down to the ground and compost the dead stems.

To contrast against red valerian, these tall white flowers work perfectly. The flowers arrived in good condition and took instantly when they were planted and grew very nicely indeed. Another excellent order from Crocus..

A great hardy plant for a shady area. I'm hoping to lighten a dark area with white flowering plants

Regarded by some as almost a weed this plant performs all summer and fills in gaps in mixed borders or spilling out onto paths or over walls. It self seeds freely but is easy to remove. The white version is a lovely change from the more common link variety.
