Award-winning Catmint 'Walker's Low' (Nepeta racemosa) is a popular herbaceous perennial noted for its massive lavender-blue blooms on short spikes, atop aromatic, gray-green foliage in early summer, continuing on and off through early fall if spent flowers are regularly removed.
- A remarkably low-maintenance plant, this excellent performer is highly versatile and can be used in many situations: in the front of the perennial border, in rock gardens or in naturalistic plantings. It is also great for edging beds or paths and even as a ground cover!
- Its noteworthy qualities have earned it many awards including the Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society (2012) and Perennial Plant of the Year Award (2007).
- Hardy, it typically grows in spreading clumps up to 2-3 ft. tall and wide (60-90 cm) in average, dry to medium, well-drained soils and thrives in full sun to part shade.
- A dry soil lover, it is drought tolerant. Humidity and salt tolerant too!
- Attracts the energy of hummingbirds and butterflies but is ignored by deer and rabbits.
- Shear flower spikes after flowering to encourage new blooms.
