Nepeta - Catmints

Known as Catmint or Catnip, Nepeta is a truly gifted perennial that deserves a spot in any garden. Extremely attractive, its billowing foliage is topped with flower spikes in shades of white, blue, purple or even yellow. The purple-blue varieties are often used as a substitute for lavender plants, where lavender is not particularly hardy. Slightly aromatic the foliage is gray-green with a delicate, lacy appearance. Thanks to the repeat blooms throughout the season, Nepeta benefits from a long-lasting blooming season from spring to fall. Resilient to most pests and diseases, it is dear repellent, drought resistant, attracts hummingbirds and is easy to care for.
