For my catalogue....Red Valerian


For my catalogue....Red Valerian (Centranthus ruber (Red valerian))

I've always loved this plant, but never really had room for it. I've planted three small ones in the wildflower patch and in a couple of years it should really look great there. :)

I am growing a patch of white in the back garden, very slow to get going but rampant when it does :o)

That's good, it will keep the weeds down. Did you spot the cleavers in the background? Bane of my (and the farmer's) life here! He and I are waging war from both sides of the hedge! he's very nice, our farmer! ;)

I get a lot of those, too. I really dislike the feel of them! And they grow so quickly :-(
