Catmint (Nepeta Subsessilis Grand View mix) 300 seeds (#1901)

'Grand View' - selection of beautiful, impressive flowers in a variety of colors. This perennial medicinal herb grows up to 40-60 cm tall and 30-70 cm wide.
Showy spikes of bell-shaped, deep violet, violet-blue, blue or pink flowers (to 5 cm long) with maroon spots bloom in dense false whorls atop square, leafy stems clad with aromatic, toothed, green foliage. Long summer bloom period. Although Nepeta cataria is the true catnip which house cats love, the leaves of this species are also attractive, albeit it less so, to cats.
Genus name comes from the Latin name for certain aromatic plants that included catmint. It may honor the city of Nepete (known as Nepi today) located north of Rome in Etruria which was the ancient country located between the Arno and Tiber Rivers and was recognized, prior to the rise of Rome, as the center of the Etruscan civilization.
Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Species plants perform best in cool, moist soils and generally lack the drought tolerance typical of most other nepetas. In northern areas, site plants in full sun. In the deep South, site plants in areas with some light afternoon shade.
Plants may be cut back before first flowering to promote more compact size. Shear flower spikes after initial flowering to promote continued bloom.
