Red Valerian: “Coccineus"

The other night, my husband and I were sitting out on the deck enjoying the mild evening we'd long awaited, and saw another sight we'd long awaited...hummingbirds. While I'd seen a few taking some random flights through the yard, particularly when the blueberries were blossoming, it was clear this time around when one was spending a whole lot of time on our newly blooming red valerian here, we might have some hummingbirds taking up residence...and we couldn't be more overjoyed!

I actually planted this lovely in the fall in our back garden, at the start of my 'fruit forest' adventures, and now wished I'd have bought a million more of these, as they definitely embrace the wildflower vibe!!
