Sprawling perennial with grey-green foliage. Fragrant purple-blue flowers throughout growing season, useful as a filler and edging plant. Seeds itself around modestly, without becoming a nuisance.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.

|Christopher Langabeer||Apr 28, 2008||Could you tell me:is there a plant that deters cats from going onto gardens?.
I have heard that 'cat nip' is supposed the deter them but I can find no mention of the fact on the web pages.
Catnip will do just the opposite - cats like it. I don't know which plants would act as deterrents.
