Valerian Blossoms

My Valerian is Beautiful this Year!!

If anyone has ever taken Valerian Root capsules for sleeping then they know how "stinky" the root is...but the Flower of the Valerian plant has such a Wonderful Sweet Aroma that you'd never know it was the same plant! I grow it outside my windows so that I can smell it in the house.

This is a super easy plant to grow too. It's likes "wet feet" so it will do best where it gets plenty of water. Keep in mind that it grows a good 4-5 feet tall, so I like to plant it behind other herbs or perennials~
