An improved Catmint, the petite and sweet Nepeta Cat’s Pajamas dashes skyward to flaunt countless lavender flowers from soil line to tips. Aptly named, the 1920’s saying ‘the cat’s pajamas’ is defined as an excellent person or thing. Blooms 2-3 weeks earlier than classic varieties. Long blooming! As flowers begin to fade, the rosy purple calyxes remain to supply an additional splash of color.

Proven Winners® selections are trialed and tested to be colorful, long blooming, carefree and easy to grow. Nepeta are idea for rock gardens, containers and border fronts. Dependable, long-blooming, deer and rabbit resistant – absolutely trouble free. One of the best plants to edge or under plant a rose bed.
