Description

As with Anthriscus ‘Ravenswing’, Ragged Robin and Briza, (the Greater Quaking grass), lots of our native plants are hugely worthwhile and long-performing perennials to include in our gardens. True Valerian is a great example. This flowers all summer, has great stature and elegance and is top-class for pollinators.

Care Tips

For best establishment site in damp grassland habitats, where a large clump should form.
