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.
