Nepeta General Information

Nepeta are smothered with blossoms in summer. Likes sun and tolerates dry conditions once established. One of the best plants to edge or underplant a rose bed. Cats enjoy it as much as catnip. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Nepeta Plant Care

Prefers dryish, not especially fertile soil. Long blooming, but spent flowers can be sheared off to promote rebloom and/or improve appearance. Cut back by 2/3 in July to promote reblooming in August to end of summer. Cut back in early spring to 4-6". Can be divided every 3 - 4 years in spring.

Plantable Pots

Our plants are grown in 3.5x3.5x4” plantable pots. Made from 100% biodegradable coconut husk fibers (coir), these pots have tremendous advantages over plastic pots. With better air exchange, this "breathable" pot fosters robust root growth and reduces transplant shock since you can plant the pots directly in the ground. The pot naturally becomes part of the soil on its own over time—no composting required—and since they're made from a renewable resource that requires very little energy, they're earth-friendly too!

100% Guarantee

We offer a 100% guarantee for all our perennials to reach you in good condition and to grow. If you're not satisfied, we'll reship or refund immediately. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have questions or concerns—we share your passion for gardening and want your new plants to thrive in your border!
