1. Red Valerian
This plant is also known as spur flower. In France you can see these beautiful red flowers everywhere in nature. Sometimes they seem to just jump out of the rocks. In our country, they are popular in rock gardens. The spur flower grows effortlessly in poor soil. A feral species occurs in some places in our country.
Height: 30-80 centimeters
When to sow red valerian: spring
Flowering time: May to June
Latin name: Centranthus Ruber
Plant type: perennial
The red valerian is one of the easiest plants in the garden. Give it a spot in the sun or partial shade and you don’t have to do anything about it.
2. Red tulip
By now we all know that our ‘national’ flower actually comes from Turkey and Iran. But that is no reason not to include this beautiful spring bloomer in the garden. There are many shades of red and you can combine them with them. Tulips don’t bloom very long, but they do bloom profusely. And there are few flowers that make it so obvious that they enjoy the sun.
Height: 50 centimeters
When to sow tulips: autumn at a depth of 10 centimeters
Flowering time: spring
Latin name: Tulipa
Plant type: bulbous plant
When the tulip has finished flowering in the garden, remove the flower. You leave the green until it turns yellow and at that moment you remove it.
