Nepeta nervosa


Catmint

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.375.180


This species of Catmint is not well known at all, but deserves a spot in any sunny border. Plants form a dense, low clump of narrow grey-green leaves, bearing chubby spikes of rich blue flowers in midsummer. Excellent for cutting, the flowers are also attractive to butterflies. Nice towards the front of a sunny border, on it mixed pots. Plants are easily divided in early spring. Removing faded flowers regularly will encourage more buds to form.
