Hi Everyone!

I just recently bought a plant that was labeled "Valerian", but in looking at it, it doesn't look like the normal valerian I used to grow for medicinal purposes (Officianalis). Does anyone know what this one is? (photo attached.)

This looks like it might be red valerian.

Thanks Margie! The flower buds are starting to come out now but it looks like the flower is white... I will keep watching it and do some more research. I will also see if I can get the latin name from the person I bought it off of. That should shed some light.
