Nepeta x psfike 'Little Trudy' (Catmint)

Catmint


Vigorous, drought tolerant, hardy, Catmint 'Little Trudy' (Nepeta x psfike) is a dwarf, compact form of catmint with a low spreading habit and a long blooming season. Atop a finely textured, aromatic, silvery foliage, its profuse purple-violet flowers are on permanent display from late spring to late summer. Ideal for small gardens or containers!

  • Typically growing in bushy mounds up to 8-10 in. tall (20-25 cm) and 12-16 in. wide (30-40 cm), it is resilient to most pests and diseases, is deer or rabbit repellent, drought resistant, attracts butterflies or hummingbirds and is easy to care for.
  • A remarkably low-maintenance plant, this excellent performer is highly versatile and can be used in many situations: at the front of mixed borders, as an edging plant and has the perfect size for containers. Great for rock gardens too!
  • A full sun lover (tolerates some shade), it thrives in dry to medium, well-drained soils. Dry soils are welcomed!
  • Shear flower spikes after flowering to encourage new blooms.
