I can't identify a plant growing in my garden, can you help?
Is there some way to download a picture to you or do you know what a garden heliatrope(?) is? Thanks for your help?

Garden heliotrope is usually used as a common name for a plant called Valeriana officinalis in Latin. There are links to several images of it at
through Texas A&M.
I'm sorry it has taken us so long to answer your question. Unfortunately there is no way to send us a picture directly. I hope this is what you were asking about.
