A tall perennial herb native to Europe and Asia that produces clusters of aromatic pale-pink or white flowers which are great for attracting pollinators. The scent of the flowers is sweet and similar to vanilla. The plant can grow very tall, up to 4 feet and requires a full sun to partial shade. It's important to know that if you're growing Valerian for it's medicinal qualities make sure you grow it in an easy to access part of your garden because the root is what you'll be harvesting. The soil conditions need to be moist, well-drained loamy soil or compost-rich soil.

    These were a bogo.

    I planted both plants in a raised bed upon arrival. One plant didn't look as healthy as the other. They've been in the ground for several weeks. The healthy one is doing awesome. The little one has gone on to plant heaven.

    I have begun purchasing most of my plants from ya'll

    I'm very happy with everything. You being a central Florida nursery is a big plus. Your packaging is by far superior to any other nursery I have bought from. All but one plant I've gotten are doing exceptionally well. 1 out of 30 is very good odds.

    Bringing the love of nature back

    I am planning to order this as soon as I get moved back to the area. Currently I am in Alabama and it's difficult to grow things here because of the clay soil. Not very good drainage. But when I have settled in the area where I grew up I'm going to have a multitude of plants that heal and it has been a dream of mine to help others.
