Also known as red valerian for its rosy pink flowers, Jupiter's beard is one of the longest-blooming perennials in the garden, provided you remove spent flower heads. Deadheading not only prolongs bloom, it also prevents self seeding. In some regions, Jupiter's beard has escaped from gardens and become a nonnative wildflower.
Jupiter's beard looks great with the fuzzy silver leaves of lamb's-ears. Its pink flowers and bluish-green foliage stands out against this plant.Artemisia
The hot, dry, sunny conditions in which artemisias thrive also work well for Jupiter's beard. The silvery foliage of artemisia makes the pink flowers of Jupiter's beard pop in the garden.Baptisia
Baptisia bloom coincides with the first flush of Jupiter's beard bloom. After baptisia is done blooming, its bluish-green foliage creates a pleasing backdrop for Jupiter's beard and helps support tall stems that may become floppy.
