Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
Nepeta racemosa produces a mass of violet-purple flower spikes that cover the mid-green leaves from June to September. Its low, spreading habit lends itself particularly well to making good ground cover, as well as softening the edges of borders and paths. Aptly named Catmint, this hardy perennial has a strange effect on cats, who seem to love its fragrant foliage. Just like all Nepeta, this variety will attract plenty of bees to your garden. Height: 30cm (12"). Spread: 45cm (18").

Culinary information: The strong, minty/spicy flavoured flowers can be used sparingly in pasta or rice dishes. For more details about edible flowers click here.
