Valerian, Official Plant (Valeriana officinalis), organic

$7.50 $5.00

Family: Valerian (Valerianaceae)

Hardy to Zones 4 to 8.

Herbaceous perennial native to Europe and temperate Asia.  Traditional usage (TWM): sedative. Valerian prefers full sun to part shade and moist but well-drained soils.  It will grow all right in dense, clay soils that are composted with organic compost, but really thrives in very fast draining soils such as sandy loam or potting soil made with plenty of pumice.  We often cut back the aerials before shipment, as they will transplant better for you that way–just plant in a bigger pot with the crown at the surface of the soil, or plant in a mellow bed in the garden.  Plant 1 to 2 feet apart.

Potted plant, Certified Organically Grown

      Hi there,
      Since our pot size is variable depending on the root system of the plants, and since plants are potted up to bigger pots as needed, generalizations are simply not possible. Our focus is on giving a healthy start that will work well for you. Valerian currently in 5 inch deep pots. If you’re looking for a good deal on valerian, buy the roots instead of the potted plants. r
