Cannot ship to Connecticut or Wisconsin.

Germination Information: Start the seeds indoors in late winter through spring, just pressed into the surface of the growing medium, and keep them evenly moist in a warm, bright place. It may take several weeks for the seeds to sprout. Be aware that the young seedlings look very different from the mature plants; they will eventually develop the usual pinnate leaves.

Note that this information will not appear on the seed packet you receive.

Long prized for its medicinal properties—particularly those of its roots—garden valerian (Valeriana officinalis) is quite ornamental as well. It produces basal rosettes of rich green, pinnate leaves and upright, 4- to 6-foot-tall stems that are topped with clusters of bright white to pink-tinged, fragrant, white blooms through early to midsummer. Be aware that common valerian can self-sow readily; if not deadheaded, it may seed into nearby natural areas, particularly in northern states. (It is currently classified as invasive in Connecticut and Wisconsin.) Full sun; average to moist soil. Zones 4 to 7.

Cannot ship to CT or WI.

Collected in early to mid July 2023. At least 15 seeds. Shipping to US addresses only.
