Wonderful Plant Review by RR - Indianapolis , AL
Posted on 2015-12-27

We bought 2 plants several years ago. Planted w/compost added in hole & watered-in w/Miracle Grow. Watered weekly first 6 weeks. Ever since, we've annually had 5'-6' tall & 3-4' wide plants FULL if flowers in our church's Hummingbird & Butterfly garden. Quite the showstoppers, & no one has ever sern them before. Love the name, Keys of Heaven quite fits & we're always happy to recommend them.... And to mention that Spring Hill is the only place we've ever found them for sale. Should be as popular as coneflowers or day lillies!!

Plant the Keys of Heaven plant for a carefree perennial with a sweet scent. Use this Centranthus ruber coccineus plant as a colorful addition to flower arrangements. Commonly called red valerian, the plant features showy scarlet flowers in 2-inch-wide clusters. Jupiter's Beard is another name for this colorful perennial that thrives in full sun and average or sandy soil.

With the eye-catching Keys of Heaven plant, flowering date depends on climate. In hot areas, the Centranthus ruber coccineus produces scarlet blooms early to midsummer; in cool areas, this pretty perennial flowers all summer. Cultivate the fragrant red valerian flower in neutral to slightly alkaline soil for a plant that can reach 3 feet tall. Also called Jupiter's beard, Keys of Heaven flowers also can grow in poor soils, but its form will be more compact.
