Nepeta General Information

Nepeta are smothered with blossoms in summer. Likes sun and dry conditions. Cats enjoy it as much as catnip.

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 down in early spring to 4-6". Can be divided every 3 - 4 years in spring.
