Commonly known as Elder-Leaved Valerian, this clump-forming perennial throws up tall slender stems, which carry flowerheads of pale pink blooms during early summer. Valeriana has highly scented flowers which will add a lovely aroma to your garden.

A great herbaceous perennial that will add height to your beds and borders. Choose a situation in the full sun that has a reasonably good soil and this perennial will be extremely happy. Valeriana self-seeds, if you wish to avoid having  seedlings remove the flower stems as the flowers go over. This plant is great for pollinators.
