Description

Valerian is an herbaceous perennial, with white lowers in the second year, growing to a height of 5 feet or more. Zones 4 to 8; native to Europe and temperate Asia. Valerian prefers full sun to part shade and moist but well-drained soils. I have seen excellent clumps form during a wet spring, on the peak of a pile of ground pumice. However, regular garden soil amended with organic compost will do nicely. This plant adapts rather well to a wide range of conditions. Seed is short-lived and should be sown within a year of receipt. This plant is a light dependent germinator. Sow in spring, tamped securely into surface, and keep evenly moist until germination, which occurs in 10 to 16 days. Seedling leaves look very un-valerian at first and some folks are confused. But have faith, in time the leaves will become divided and much more closely resemble the standard form of the plant. Space plants 1 to 2 feet apart. [50 organically certified seeds/ packet]
