Nepeta | 9cm Pot
Spikes of dusky purple flowers with lightly fragrant foliage...
Commonly called 'Garden Catmint', this classic Nepeta variety will form spikes of light purple flowers. Accompanied by their lightly aromatic foliage, these tubular blooms will add delicate pop of colour to a border, and will look beautiful planted en masse or in drifts. Borne from summer onwards, these gorgeous blooms will ornament your garden with a long-lasting floral display. With a weaker fragrance, Catmint is a great alternative to Lavender for those who aren't too fond of strong aromas.
- Why not plant in drifts to achieve fragrant swathes of dusky purple?

Our herbaceous plants are lovingly grown by our trusted nursery, based in England. Each flourishing plant will be dispatched directly to your home.
Please note, your potted plant may not display flowers as soon as it arrives. However, the 'flowering period' box (detailed above), indicates when you can expect flowers to form. Many of our herbaceous perennials also die back in winter, so will have little growth in spring, but grow quickly once sunlight hours improve.
Sustainability is one of our priorities, and as such, our perennials and alpines are delivered in environmentally friendly packaging. Aside from being recyclable, they will keep them nice and secure on their journey.
Please see our below guidance on your perennial or alpine's care:
- Watering: During your perennial or alpine's first growing season, you should provide them with frequent waterings. Try to also avoid wetting the foliage to reduce the risk of disease.
- Deadheading: To promote a long flowering period, you should deadhead any flowers that appear spent. Simply rescind each flower at their base, taking care to not cut other parts of the plant.
- Dividing: To really flourish, your perennials can be divided every three to four years. They can be divided when they begin to show less flowers, or appear less healthy in the middle. Make sure to only do so when they aren't currently flowering.
Please note: Herbaceous perennials can die back in winter, so don't be alarmed if this happens and instead look forward to spring!
