Nepeta subsessilis ‘Blue Dreams’


Japanese Catmint

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.375.240


Different in habit from the low, edging types of Catmint, this species forms a bushy, upright mound of fragrant, glossy green leaves. Clusters of tubular bright-blue flowers appear through the summer. A good mid-border selection, also excellent in containers. Flowers are nice for cutting. Clumps may be pruned back hard in July to rejuvenate the foliage and encourage repeat flowering in the autumn. Easily divided in early spring. Attractive to butterflies. This strain was developed by Jelitto Seeds of Germany.
