Nepeta Walker's Low

Catmint

March 13, 2016 @ 4:44 am

Catmint is a long-blooming perennial… especially if you shear it back after the first bloom.  Its lavender blue flowers blend well with the silvery foliage.  A favorite of bees, it mixes well in an herb garden and at the front of a perennial border.  A great perennial for beginners since it is so easy to grow.  Deer and rabbit resistant. Drought tolerant.
