Centranthus ruber 'Albus' is also known as Valerian, or Jupiter's beard. This plant was once a cottage garden favorite but seems to be all-but-forgotten in today's gardens. We use this in a part shade setting. The fleshy, bluish lance-shaped foliage rises up tall stems which bear cymes of small, funnel-shaped flowers. The flowers are fragrant.

Late spring to late summer.  24 in. x 24 in.

White flowers

Sun, Part Shade     Zones 5, 6, 7, 8
