Valerian is an upright plant with tall clusters of white and pinkish flowers from July to August/September. Plants grow to 1.5m in height and look good in many gardens from formal borders to wilder areas. They attract lots of pollinators into the garden. The roots of Common Valerian are traditional herbal medicines.
Common Valerian grows best in full sun to part shade and moist soils. They are very adaptable plants and can cope with coastal gardens, more neglected situations and water-side locations.
