Common Name: Catmint, Catnip
Gray-green, aromatic foliage gives way to a plethora of soft lavender-blue flowers which are produced over a long period in summer. Although the stems are 2-3′ long, the plant’s arching habit brings the height down to 18-24″ if it is not staked.
When Nepeta’s stems are broken, they release an aroma into the air that tends to attract cats, thus its common name, Catmint.
Attracts butterflies, hummingbirds, and bees. Deer and rabbit resistant.
