A much-loved old-world favourite, this valerian has elegant sweet-scented blooms and is rarely without flower from spring through to autumn. Soft fleshy blue-green foliage adds to its charm, with its airy heads of white offering the perfect companion to roses or bearded iris. As tough as they come, it thrives in all soil or garden conditions including heat and coastal. The ultimate romantic low-maintenance addition to borders, gravel, seaside or cottage gardens, requiring nothing more than deadheading to encourage repeat flowering.
Adaptable to almost all soils and positions in the garden, but prefers full sun to half shade in free-draining , alkaline, impoverished to moderate soil. Extremely drought, heat, coast and frost tolerant, this tough, easy care plant requires low to no maintenance to thrive in a range of conditions. Deadhead to promote flowering and inhibit prolific self seeding.
