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.
