Red Valerian

Jupiter's Beard thrives in the hottest sunniest spot in the garden. In partial shade, though still a strong bloomer, it's a bit leggy and tends to flop. It's fleshy roots make it challenging to transplant so, if it's in a well-drained spot, it's best just to leave it alone. The somewhat looser structure gives a nice wildflower meadow effect.
