Hardy Perennial

Valerian

NZ $3.95

Description

Valerian produces, from a basal clump of feathery foliage, hollow flower stems with high bearing flat topped clusters of tiny pale pink fragrant flowers that smell rather like heliotrope all summer. The strong smelling root when disturbed is attractive to cats, like Catnip. Medicinally Valerian is grown for its roots, which are dried and used for teas and tonics and was popular in Victorian times as a sleeping draught. Note: This variety should not be confused with the False Valerian or Red Spur Valerian, Latin name Centranthus rubra.

Matures second season from transplant.
