Valerian (Valeriana officinalis) Herb in 9cm Pot 

Native to Europe and Britain, Valeriana officinalis is a hardy perennial that grows to 1.5m tall, and produces heads of sweetly scented white to soft pink flowers which bloom in the summer months, being rich in nectar they are attractive to pollinating insects.  It has soft mounds of aromatic, finely divided foliage, and its natural, billowing habit makes it ideally suited to wild planting schemes.

Other names used for this plant include Garden Valerian (to distinguish it from other Valeriana species), Garden Heliotrope (although not related to Heliotropium) and All-heal.

Valerian prefers to grow in a sunny position, and will cope in any soil, although it does prefer some moisture, and once established, it will self seed readily - remove seed heads after flowering to stop it becoming too prolific.

Herb usage

Valerian was used as a perfume in the sixteenth century. The roots have traditionally been used in herbal medicine and are processed and used medicinally as an aid to sleep.
