Nepeta racemosa Superba

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.

Nepeta racemosa ‘Superba’ full sun

A matlike habit and small leaves give ‘Superba’ a fine texture that sets it apart from other Nepetas. Contrast its compact carpet of gray-green foliage with a backdrop of Phygelius x ‘Pink Elf’.

Blooms May–October.

Size: 12" high x 15" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Customer Comment:

“I found Digging Dog in a gardening magazine and am so thrilled I did. I went to their website after reading about them and was so impressed I immediately placed an order ( after checking with Garden Watchdog of course !) My plants were delayed 3 weeks due to the hot weather. Each Monday someone from Digging Dog called, explained the situation and explained the delay. What service!! My plants arrived today happy healthy and good size. I could not be happier and will shop Digging Dog much in the future.”
