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.
