Nepeta

Catmint

Sometime around May a certain fragrance tells us that itís time for sunny days and warm weather. Itís Nepeta! Catmint, as it is commonly called, is a free bloomer whose billowy mounds of lavender, pink or white flowers are as opulent as its aromatic foliage.

Supposedly, this herb renders timid people fierce, and the botanist Tournefort tells of a hangman who couldnít cut the mustard ďtil he chewed a little catmint root.Ē Make sure you have some Loosestrife around in case things get out of hand.

Cut back in July for an encore in the fall.

This low mounding newcomer has a clean-cut look that lasts throughout the summer, making it excellent for the front of a border. The deep lavender-blue flowers are some of the most vividly colored of the Nepetas we offer, and they harmonize beautifully with the blooms of Penstemon ‘Pike’s Peak Purple’ and Helenium ‘Coppelia’.

Blooms June–September.

Size: 18" high x 2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Customer Comment:

“Ordered a selection of plants from Digging Dog earlier this year: campanula, ajuga, columbine, etc. All looked great, with healthy root systems. They've all settled in well and are thriving. I will order from them again.”
