Valerian is native to Europe, and Asia (the one we supply is from China). The strong-smelling flowers appear between June and August and its roots tend to show above the ground. Valeriana officinalis should not be confused with red or wall valerian (Entranthus ruber); which is common in gardens and waste land.
Note valerian is a banned substance under FEI rules in competition horses.
