With bright yellow foliage and purple blooms Chartreuse on the Loose is sure to fill you garden with lots of bright color. Starting in spring bright soft textured foliage emerges from the ground growing into an 8-10" tall mound of color. As spring winds to a close and summer approaches bright purple blooms pop from the yellow mounds. One plant can be used as a specimen, a few planted throughout for pops of color or multiples planted together for a blanket of bright coloration. Chartreuse on the Loose is an exciting addition to our nepeta line and we think it pairs extremely well with deeper purples, blue greens and oranges.

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 Chartreuse on the Loose - 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.
