Eat leaves fresh in salads or cooked greens, roots used in soups. Vibrant carmine-red to magenta flower clusters are a wonderful source of color in the perennial vegetable garden. Grows to 24-36”, perfect for the middle of the garden, good cut flower. Attractive to bees and butterflies. If the plant stops blooming due to heat or gets floppy, cut back by 1/3 to 1/2 to promote another round of flowers in the late summer. Not medicinally interchangeable with Valerian, officinalis (Valeriana officianlis), however the roots are rich in valerenic compounds. Also known as Jupiter’s beard and spur valerian. Tags: Color: Red, Specialty: Deer Resistant.

Native to Mediterranean region. Leaves were eaten in salads in Italy and the roots were used in French soups.
