The blue-green foliage and deep red flowers of centranthus combine to perfection plants look best grown en masse on banks or when allowed to self-seed in walls and paving, where they create a delightful random, natural effect. A background of stone gives them an ideal setting, or they can be teamed with other cottage garden flowers - especially lime-loving gypsophila, pinks and scabious - in a border. The plants are very attractive to bees, several different kinds of butterfly, and other pollinating insects.
