Description

Catmint or catnip is an easy to grow and care for plant that sprouts lovely purple flowers in the spring.

Caring for Catmint - Walker's Low - Nepeta

Beloved because they are easy to grow these perennials will provide a great show of purple color for a long period during the summer. They prefer full sun and will do best in ordinary, but well-drained soil. Cutting the plants back in the spring will promote more compact growth and cutting the entire plant back by half after the first blooms will often stimulate a second bloom.
