Valerian Blossoms

Took this shot with my Canon Rebel.  Added a wood texture for visual interest. This perennial grew to a height of 8 feet (with blossom) and bloomed for about 3 weeks.  The blossoms are fragrant, unlike the root which is quite offensive.  The root is used for medicinal purposes; a sleep/relaxant aid.
