Nepeta faassenii 'Walker's Low'

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 feet long, the plant's arching habit brings the height down to 18 to 24 inches 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.
