This fine cottage garden plant is original from the Mediterranean. The flowers are a source of nectar for bees and also many butterflies and moths, including the hummingbird hawk-moth.
The name Centranthus originates from the Greek words kentron, meaning a spur, and anthos, meaning a flower. This is a reference to the corolla, the petals as a whole having spurs at the base.
