Valerian is a robust perennial herb steeped in centuries of medicinal tradition. Thriving under the embrace of full sun and in well-drained, moist soils, this resilient plant has a rich history dating back to the 16th century. Native to the temperate regions of Europe and Asia, Valerian, also affectionately known as All Heal and Garden Heliotrope, also grows well in cooler climates.
In your garden, Valerian is not just a functional herb; it's an ornamental delight. Come late June through July, towering stalks rise, crowned with creamy white and pink flowers that emit a sweet and captivating fragrance.
It is a secret pleasure for feline friends, who revel in the scent of freshly unearthed Valerian roots, alongside their beloved catnip.
Valerian captivates both people and pollinators with its beautiful blooms and purported medicinal prowess, embodying the essence of a versatile and enduring garden treasure.
