(1 customer review)


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

    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!
