Blooms Earlier than Classic Catmint
A no-fuss perennial! The fragrant periwinkle-purple flowers make their appearance about 2 weeks earlier than classic Catmint. Its broad tidy habit is the ‘purrfect’ size for the front of the border. The flowers cover beautifully textured quilted foliage. Long blooming! Nepeta Picture Purrfect is smothered with blossoms in summer. Its tidy habit makes it ideal to edge or underplant a rose bed. Its long season of bloom and carefree habit make it a good companion to Coreopsis and Hemerocallis.

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.
