Nepeta racemosa ‘Little Titch’
at Digging Dog

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.

‘Little Titch’ has such a small stature that even Nepeta ‘Superba’ is more upright. With tightly packed gray-green leaves, it forms a low growing, dense mat. Adorning stem tips, small heads of rich blue flowers bloom all summer long. ‘Little Titch’ is delightful between rocks or up front in the border with Dracocephalum ‘Fuji White’ and Diascia ‘Coral Canyon’.

Blooms May–September.

Size: 8"–10" high x 15" wide; hardy to zone 5.
