(1 customer review)

$7.50

Greetings!  Plants are available to the US only.  Potted plants, trees and succulents listed on this website may be ordered now, and will begin shipping September 5th.  If you have a preferred ship date, tell us right away! Our plant shipping seasons are:  March 15 through July 31, then again Sep 5 through Thanksgiving.  Order early to assure availability.

Family: Valerian (Valerianaceae)

Hardy to Zones 4 to 8.

Herbaceous perennial native to Europe and temperate Asia.  Traditional usage (TWM): sedative.  This cultivar selected for high concentration of valeric and valerenic constituents.  Valerian prefers full sun to part shade and moist but well-drained soils.  I have seen excellent clumps form, during a wet spring, when planted on the peak of a pile of ground pumice with a soil substrate.  However, regular garden soil amended with organic compost will do nicely.  The plant adapts rather well to a wide range of conditions. Space plants 1 to 2 feet apart.  Flowers white in the second year to a height of 5 feet or more.

Potted plant, Certified Organically Grown

    Wonderful

    I am heading into my 3rd year with this Valerian and I am very much in love with it. I live in North Dakota, Zone 4B but very close to 4A. My Valerian is planted on a western facing side of the house in a small retaining wall. Every year this plant seems to double in size, and every year I am delighted to see it. Both my cats and I wait anxiously for the first spring growth. At least now it is big enough that I don’t worry about it when they roll all over the leaves!

      Hi Katie, I, too, have been really enjoying the valerian this year. It does tend to come back vigorously and make delightful flowers. i was remembering 40 plus years ago that valerian was one of our first attempts at growing medicinals, and how impressed I was by the perfume of the flowers and how many pollinators were attracted to it.

      I purchased Valerian seeds from you years ago and it has naturalized to my back yard. No worry about harvesting roots, there’s plenty. I encouraged it because it attracted so many pollinators. My garden is full of blooming clumps of valerian. The air is heavy with that wonderful fragrance. Last two years no bugs save for a lone honey bee now and then – in Baltimore Maryland.
