Nepeta subsessilis Cool Cat

June – September.

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.

Icy spikes of white-specked lavender-blue flowers to soothe the senses on a hot afternoon are what this new, highly touted Nepeta has to offer. Compact straight-up stems are densely shrouded in dark green serrated leaves, making a tidy aromatic base for the prolific summer long display. Partner with Eryngium ‘Blue Jackpot’ and blue-flowered Anchusa and enjoy the cool-colored vignette.

Size: 2' 0"–2-1/2' high x 3' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Customer Comment:

“Thank you for your continued great service and excellent plants.... all the plants arrived in perfect condition. Healthy, and ready to bloom...the primrose produced a beautiful flower, just two weeks after arrival! We have always been impressed with the careful packaging, size and hardiness of your plant stock. We ordered Alstroemeria many years ago that have flowered every year, and are more beautiful with time. Thanks again!”
