Nepeta x faassenii 'Walkers Low'

Catmint

Nepeta 'Walker's Low' has soft, fragrant, gray-green foliage. In April, sprays of large, trumpet-shaped, distinct bluish purple flowers appear on upright arching stems and continue until October. Despite the name, 'Walker's Low' is best in the middle of a border because of its mid-sized stature. An excellent blue to accompany other colors. Very attractive to pollinators. Its long season of bloom and carefree habit make it a worthy addition to any sunny garden!
