Nepeta mussinii ‘Six Hills Gold’


USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.375.350

This is a new sport from an old favourite. Like N. ‘Six Hills Giant’ it produces a wide, cloud of violet-blue flowers from May to September. The fuzzy, aromatic foliage in early spring is variegated cream and green maturing to green by mid-summer. Trim to encourage second flowering. Excellent choice for edging a path, or growing in a pot where you might brush past it. A superb bee and butterfly plant making it an excellent choice for planting to attract pollinators for fruit trees.
