Description of Valerian (Valeriana officinalis)

Valerian is a perennial plant that has established itself in both traditional medicine and gardening due to its well-known calming effects. Native to Eurasia, this plant has been used for centuries, valued for its versatility and health benefits.

Origin and History

Valeriana officinalis originates from regions in Europe and Asia, where it has been valued since ancient times for its medicinal properties, particularly as a natural sedative. The plant has been an integral part of herbal medicine in many cultures and continues to be a staple in modern phytotherapy.

General Care

Valerian is remarkably resilient and tolerates cold well, making it ideal for varied climates. Although the above-ground part of the plant may die back in winter, its roots remain viable and vigorously resprout with the arrival of spring. It prefers exposure ranging from full sun to partial shade and adapts to almost any type of soil, provided it has good drainage.


Although tolerant, valerian prefers to be kept in consistently moist conditions. It is advisable to water it regularly, ensuring the soil does not dry out completely. Applying a layer of mulch can be very beneficial for helping retain soil moisture, especially during the warmer months.

Pruning and Propagation Control

Valerian can self-seed quite easily, which may be convenient for those who wish for natural propagation in their gardens. However, if controlling its spread is preferred, it is advisable to remove the flowers before they mature and disperse seeds.

Growing valerian from seeds is straightforward. Seeds can be sown directly in the garden once the risk of frost has passed, or started indoors a few weeks earlier and transplanted outside when conditions are favorable. This ease of cultivation and its undemanding nature make it a favorite among both novice and experienced gardeners.


Valerian not only enriches the garden with its presence but also offers therapeutic benefits, making it a valuable and multifaceted addition to any green space.
