Garden Catmint (Nepeta x faassenii) 100 seeds (#1584)

This is a top notch tough perennial for full sun. Catmint is pretty for most of the summer and there are lots of super cultivars that mingle well with other colorful sunny ornamentals.
This aromatic hardy perennial is a hybrid cross between Nepeta nepetella and N. racemosa. In spring it produces a bushy mound of small, gray-green, scalloped leaves that are slightly hairy. By late spring it offers loose spikes of lavender-blue or violet-blue flowers. These are highly attractive to bees and will reliably re-bloom if spent flowers are removed.
The toughness of this perennial can’t be beat. It is both drought and heat tolerant and even grows well along the edge of hot pavement. It is a total sun-lover, so don’t even attempt to grow it in shade. It prefers average soil with excellent drainage. Pebbly or sandy soils work too.
This lovely mint looks best planted in masses and makes a superb companion to ornamental grasses and summer-blooming composites. Though not true catnip, its aroma still entices felines. Catmint is known to self-sow but not aggressively.
