Valerian \ Garden Heliotrope
Considered by many horticulturists to be one of the finest hardy perennials for the shade. Fragrant 5"" pinkish-white flower clusters in mid-summer perfume the early evening air. What irony then, that the medicinal roots should smell so bad. A cold tea made from dried 2 year old roots is used for colds, insomnia and nervous disorders.
