They love slightly acidic soil conditions and require fertilizers to grow. During early spring time, you need to feed a balanced fertilizer to your plants weekly. You should stop feeding your plants about 6 weeks before the first frost. During winter, you need to protect the rose plants from winter damage. This can be done by cutting about 30 to 36 inches of the tall canes and tying the tips together. Clear off any dead leaves, stems, around the plant. You should till about 12 inches of soil around the center of the plant. Then cover the soil mounds with straw, leaves, etc. Mulch about 15 to 18 inches of the soil mound. After winter passes, you can remove the mulch and soil from around the plant base. Leave only about 2 inches of mulch to make sure water is retained around the plant during summer, and prevent weed growth.
Let us now go into the details of the reproductive parts and understand what the functions are. The reproductive parts are called the gynoecium. It is a female reproductive part made up of pistils. The pistils are made up of the stigma, style and ovaries. The stigma is located at the top of the pistil which acquires the pollen from the pollinators. The style helps connect both the stigma and the ovary with one another. It is the part of the flower which gets fertilized after pollination. Once the fertilization process is over, the fruit or the seed of the flower grow inside the ovule. Many flowers have one or more than one ovary present.
The red valerian (Centranthus ruber) is very famous for its ornamental flowers. It blooms for a longer duration in cooler climatic conditions. It is a widely grown ornamental subshrub, best adapted in USDA zones 3 - 9. You can plant stem cuttings of valerian in dry soil. Flower buds start developing in early spring and continue to bloom throughout summer. Irrespective of the individual flowers being as tiny as 2 cm, the inflorescence is huge and looks spectacular. You will usually see purplish-red flowers, with occasional blooms of white and lavender. The plant is also called Jupiter's beard and spur valerian.
