‘Cat’s Pajamas’ catmint

Nepeta 'Cat's Pajamas'

2021 Proven Winners National Perennial of the Year

A smaller-scale catmint that also blooms 2-3 weeks earlier than ‘Cat’s Meow’. The ball-shaped habit carries long, dark stems that hold indigo blue flowers. Unlike older varieties that only produce flowers at the top of the stems, this improved catmint has blooms from the soil to the tips of the stems. Even when the flowers are past peak, the color of the rosy purple calyxes give another splash of color. As an added bonus, the small, aromatic leaves keep deer and rabbits away. Try this shorter stature plant in city gardens or near the front of the border.
