GENERAL DESCRIPTION

These Are Bare Root Perennial Plants And Not Flimsy Plug Plants.

The Compact Catmint “Walker’s Low” Is A Superb Tough Summer Perennial For Full Sun. This Aromatic, Blue-Flowered Beauty Is A Hybrid Cross Between Nepeta Nepetella And Nepeta Racemosa. It Produces A Neat, Bushy Mound Of Small, Grey-Green, Scalloped Leaves That Are Slightly Hairy. By Early Summer, It Offers Many Loose, Upright Spikes Of Violet-Blue Flowers. These Are Highly Attractive To Bees And Will Reliably Re-Bloom If Spent Flowers Are Pinched Off.

“Nepeta Faassinii” Has Received The Royal Horticultural Society’s Award Of Garden Merit (Agm) Which Is For Plants Of Outstanding Excellence.

The Toughness Of This Perennial Can’t Be Beat. It Is Both Heat And Draught Tolerant Once Established And Even Grows Well Along The Edge Of Hot Paved Walkways. It Is A Total Sun-Lover, So Don’t Attempt To Grow It In Shade.

Average To Fertile Soil With Excellent Drainage Is Needed For Good Health. Pebbly Or Sandy Soil Works Too. After The First Flush Of Blooms, Trim All The Stems Back To Encourage A Full, Robust Second Flush Of Flowers Later In Summer.

This Lovely Mint Looks Best When Planted In Masses And Makes A Superb Companion To Ornamental Grasses And Summer Blooming Composites. “Walker’s Low” Is Purported To Be Sterile, And Therefore Not Self-Sow, But This Is Not Consistently So
