Description :

Tall summer stems

Valeriana officinalis or garden valerian is native to Europe and throughout the summer, from May to August, produces long stems from which emerge white, scented, melliferous umbels.

Landscaping tip: make use of the upright stems in beds. They can lighten a display and add verticality which is often lacking. Contrast rounded and upright habits. For example, try planting it behind the rounded shapes of Euphorbia characias ssp wulfenii, Kalimeris incisa 'Alba' or Lysimachia clethroides.

Height: up to 2 metres. Copes well with the wind.

Grow in the sun ordinary soil that is not too dry. Very hardy. Can become naturalised.
