Nepeta faassenii ‘Purrsian Blue’


Dwarf Catmint

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.375.300


This selection is similar to C. ‘Cat′s Meow’ in that it has a tidy habit but in year two doubles its spread while only reaching 45cm (18 inches) tall. It features green leaves that are highly aromatic when crushed or bruised so an excellent addition planted along a garden path. Small periwinkle blue flowers are densely clustered and bloom from early summer to early fall. Shear back the initial flower spikes for continuous bloom. Attractive to our feline friends. USPP#24788: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
