Valerian / Valeriana officinalis

Other names:
garden heliotrope, all-heall
The flowers are sweet smelling and this useful herb can help insomnia. For a minority of people Valerian can have the opposite affect to drowsiness and works better taken as a tea early in the day rather than last thing before bed.
