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
