Description Fine Print
 
Centranthus ruber or red valerian forms loose clumps of somewhat fleshy leaves and stems to two to three feet that are topped with clusters of long-lasting, red to deep pink, star-shaped flowers from late spring through fall. It is extremely drought tolerant and tough. I've seen it growing out of volcanic rubble at the top of Mount Vesuvius and from out of the cracks in walls in southern Europe.
