White Valerian Growing and Maintenance Tips

Grows best with medium moisture, in a sandy, well-drained soil, with full sun to partial shade. Drought tolerant when established. If grown in a rich soil, centranthus may grow leggy and require staking. Prune spent flowers to maintain shape, extend bloom time and prevent self-seeding.
