The Red Valerian (Centranthus ruber), is a flowering plant that can be found near coastal areas and in Mediterranean climates. It has reddish-purple flowers and characteristic, five-petaled blooms.

Red Valerian plants can reach up to three feet in height and have a strong, woody stem. The leaves are long and pointed, and the flowers can be up to two inches across. They bloom from late spring to early summer, and their blooms release a powerful fragrance that's been described as being akin to jasmine or orange blossom.

Red Valerian grows in dry, sunny areas and can be found in fields, coastal areas, and meadows. It's a hardy plant that can adapt to a variety of soil types.
