Nepeta faassenii 'Walker's Low' Catmint



Delicately hairy gray-green leaves with a tangy, fresh fragrance that a friend calls “spicy mint.”  Clouds of small purplish-blue flowers are carried on 8-9” spikes for several weeks in midsummer.  Plants don’t tend to split in the center as other Nepetas do.  A rough shearing (cut stems back by about 2/3) after bloom keeps the plants’ habit neat and will encourage some repeat bloom until frost.  Nepetas prosper in ordinary (dare we say “poor”) soil and heat.
