Jupiter’s Beard and Columbine – The Dynamic Duo!

Jupiter’s Beard and Columbine are two flowering perennials that combine 
to make a colorful floral statement.


Jupiter’s Beard is also known as Red Valerian. It is a short bushy flowering perennial.  The red flowering variety is most commonly seen


but there is also a white flowering variety that is just as worthy of planting in your garden space.


Jupiter’s Beard flowers from spring until frost. This perennial does best when grown in a part sun garden spot. Oval Lance like leaves are gray-green in color.


Columbine is another flowering perennial that can be found in a great variety of flower colors.


Like Jupiter’s Beard, Columbine does very well when planted in a part sun garden space.

 

Jupiter’s Beard and Columbine thrive on a low to regular water schedule.
Mulch well to conserve water.

Trees That Please Nursery has these and other flowering perennials
 available in one gallon containers that are ready for planting.
