Organic Valerian

Perennial 48-78 inches tall root harvest in second fall Valeriana officinalis

A deeply medicinal hardy perennial, Valerian is beloved by people and pollinators alike. Clouds of sweet and etheric creamy pink flowers float atop 4+ foot tall stalks late June through July. Hailing from Eurasia, valerian thrives in most soils and, once established, minimal care. Their potent medicinal roots are harvestable in the second autumn, commonly infused as tea or tinctured. Though the smell of Valerian root is largely considered unpleasant by humxns, cats are equally delighted by freshly dug Valerian root and catnip…and now you know!
