About Valerian

It is an herbaceous plant, perennial, tall and vertical. Its height is up to 2 meters. Its stem is cylindrical with deep and hairy grooves. Valerian leaves are reciprocated and divided into many leaflets. Each leaf has 7 to 11 and sometimes more leaflets. The leaflets are oval, pointed with a broad, serrated base. The pink flowers appear in groups at the end of the flowering stem in late spring.

All parts of the plant, including the aerial parts and the roots, emit a pleasant odor that is very interesting and attractive to cats, and cats wander around the plant on the ground and feel pleasure. Valerian roots are scattered attached to its underground stems and are intertwined, and it is this underground stem and plant root that is used as medicine in traditional medicine.
