Nepeta × faassenii ‘Kit Cat’

Dwarf Catmint

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.375.290

This lovely selection is a dwarf cultivar that grows in spreading mounds to only 15” tall. It features scalloped, ovate, grey-green leaves that are highly aromatic when crushed or bruised. Two-lipped blue flowers are densely clustered and bloom from May to September. Although not the first choice of our feline friends, they also find the leaves of this hybrid attractive. Shear back the initial flower spikes for continuous bloom. Sometimes seen at retail as N. ‘Kit Kat’.
