This is a garden selection of the southern European “small cat-mint” that has been cultivated since the mid-18th century. The Latin name derives from Nepet, a town in Tuscany. John Parkinson’s herbal (1629) described three sorts of “nep, a greater and two lesser,” and Bernard McMahon also referred to catmint as “nep.” Like its white-flowered cousin catnip (Nepeta cataria), this species is highly aromatic and attractive to felines. It thrives in light, sandy soils and is very showy as an edging plant or trailing over rock work. Trim back any sprawling, unwanted growth after flowering, and remove faded flowers to extend the blooming period.

Arrives in a 6" plastic pot. zone4,zone5,zone6,zone7,zone8
