Nepeta 'Cat's Meow' (Nepeta faassenii 'Cat's Meow')

Name Nepeta 'Cat's Meow'
Botanical Name Nepeta faassenii 'Cat's Meow'

Truly the “cat’s meow”, the best Nepeta we’ve seen yet! Unlike most Nepetas that have a bit of a wild, unkempt look, this first class selection keeps its tidy, dense, rounded shape all season long. Its small, grey-green, aromatic leaves are topped with well-branched stems carrying spikes of sky blue flowers with purple calyxes from early summer into early fall. ‘Cat’s Meow’ has everything today’s gardeners are looking for: a low maintenance, drought tolerant, deer resistant, long blooming perennial that looks great all season.
