Nepeta racemosa

Nepeta racemosa
Synonym(s) Nepeta mussinii
Common name catmint
Family lamiaceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers lavender
Size 6"
Light full sun-part shade
Cultural notes drought tolerant once established

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.
