Valerian is a spreading, flowering plant native to Europe and North America that is sometimes called garden heliotrope.

The fragrant flowers were once widely used in perfumery. The fresh roots, however, are distinctly unpleasant smelling to humans but wildly attractive to cats. Dried valerian root is traditionally tinctured to extract the plant’s valerenic acid content.
