RHS perfect for pollinators
Perfect for pollinators

Red Valerian- centranthus ruber Red Valerian is a naturalized plant that will grow well in full sun and is very useful for growing on walls or rocky places. Red Valerian plants have showy rose-red flowers that appear between June and August. Plants provide a valuable source of nectar for Bees and other insects and look nice growing close to other summer flowering plants such as oxeye daisies.

How to grow Red Valerian from seeds:
Sow Red Valerian seeds in spring or autumn either outside where it is to flower, or in seed trays and cover lightly with compost. It is usually easy to germinate and the seedlings, which are quick to develop, can be pricked out and grown on, for planting out later in the year.

RHS Perfect for Pollinators.
The RHS Perfect for Pollinators mark is only given to plants that support pollinating insects in gardens. Bees, butterflies, moths, hoverflies and many others visit flowers to feed on nectar and pollen; while doing so they transfer pollen and increase seed set and fruit development.
