Description

Valerian is an eminently useful plant to have in the garden as well as the medicine cabinet.
It is an herbaceous perennial but although it slows down over winter, it rarely goes to ground.
The scent of the leaves, flowers and root is quite unique and not altogether unpleasant. Valerian seeds itself well and the seeds are quite easy to strike but dividing the rootstock and planting on is often faster.
Dotted in and around the garden we have found that it improves the soil quality and once removed from an area of garden, the garden soil is much improved.

As it is most dormant during Winter, we sell it from late Spring to Autumn.

PLEASE NOTE: We cannot send live plants outside Australia, to Western Australia or Tasmania.
