Jupiter's Beard Seeds

Centranthus - ruber

 

Also referred to as Keys to Heaven or Red Valerian, and is a flowering perennial with fragrant, dome-shaped clusters of small dark-pink or white flowers atop 2- to 3-foot stems. It grows equally well in bright shade to full sun and blooms from late spring to mid summer. Jupiter's beard is also drought-resistant enough to be used in water-saving xeric landscape designs. As beautiful as it is durable, Jupiter's beard sports blue-green lance-shaped foliage on smooth stems in opposite pairs. Each stem bears dense terminal clusters of electric, rose-red flowers throughout the growing season. Though it easily adapts to either dry or moist soil, occasional watering promotes heavy blooming. As flowers begin to fade, plants should be pruned back to the main clump of foliage to promote continuous blooming and keep the plant compact. Jupiter's Beard can be considered invasive.
