is a perennial inhabiting the leafy shade of a tree in mountainous
regions. Stems measure 20-40cm in height. Leaves are of opposite
phyllotaxis, parted in leaflets, with wavy, obtuse serrations on
margins. Corollas are funnel-shaped, approximately 2mm in length;
stamens do not pop out of the corollas, unlike another species,
Valeriana fauiei. As flowering is over, this species extends
runners long to make sprouts at the ends. Bloom time: April-May.
