Valeriana officinalis   Common Valerian CCC DD N

valeriana officinalis

This can be quite a tall plant up to 2m in height so these attractive pink flower heads stand out above even the tallest grasses. It particularly likes damp grassland but is common throughout the British Isles and Ireland with the possible exception of the outer Hebrides.
