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.
Pruning a banksia rose is done after flowering. It could be either during the end of spring or onset of summer. The basic aim of pruning a lady banks rose is to remove dead or diseased branches. Even damaged branches are to be pruned. Such branches can be identified by the color changes of the stem. If the stems are yellowish or brown, you may remove them. The branches have to be removed from the very base (as close to ground). Loppers can be used for this purpose. You may also remove the canes that are overgrowing, if you wish to reduce the size of the plant. In that case, make sure that the cut is made just below a set of leaves. In this way, you may also prune the branches to a standard height.
Those who regularly cut the hybrid tea blossoms, require little pruning. You should prune the plants in early spring. Make sure there are a few leaves on the stem after cutting the roses. Remove all the dead and diseased canes and the stronger canes should be pruned about 12 to 24 inches. You may find this rough on the plant, but it will encourage more growth and better blooms.
