The valley herb is a somewhat hard-to-gather plant, for it grows only in temperate grasslands in spring. It is edible when cooked, but its main use is in producing golden salve. It has no seeds. This plant can be collected by plant gathering. Unlike most other gathered plants, only a single valley herb will be gathered from a shrub.
Elven and human caravans may offer valley herbs for trade in stacks of 5, assuming their nations have access to the proper biome; this large stack size makes them ideal for processing into golden salve, as a single stack will yield a trade good worth 2,500☼ (plus vial value).
