Proven Winners perennial of the year for 2025, Cat's Meow carries on the excellent characteristics of Cat's Pajamas in slightly fuller and larger package. Coming in at around 20 inches tall and 2-3 ft. wide Cat's Meow is larger, but still keeps the tidy look of Cat's Pajamas with even dense foliage that flows together. Cat’s Meow fills with beautiful purple blooms that arch down from silvery green textured foliage. Unlike other varieties of catmint that bloom only near the top of the plant, Cat’s Meow has blooms that come down nearly to the soil line, taking a very hardy plant with decent appeal to a must have show-stopper in the garden. If you have room, plant it in bunches for a sensational purple effect.

As an added bonus, the plant has a nice aromatic scent that keeps deer and other wildlife away, but that cats actually do love. For those looking for an ultra-easy to grow perennial that is at home in foundation plantings, border gardens, rock gardens, and even containers nepeta is an excellent choice.

Nepeta faassenii Cat's Meow - Catmint

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.
