Pot Size

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. 

Valerian root is known to have many medical benefits. It's an excellent remedy for stress, anxiety, or insomnia, and great for healing the nervous and digestive systems.

    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.
