Clump-forming and fully hardy herbaceous perennial with somewhat fleshy leaves and dense cymes of rich red flowers throughout summer. Self-seeds freely, even the most unlikely places such in walls and cracks in paving. Plant in full sun in well drained soils, including really quite poor and gritty soils. Centranthus ruber var coccineus is fully hardy and will tend to give the garden a lovely, informal 'cottage' feel, H: 1m
