    Features

    I was voted MOST LIKELY to THRIVE.

    No catmint is a more beautiful, uniform grower than Cat’s Meow Nepeta. Its flowers are dense and colorful, and its habit is more refined. Plus, it stands strong with no flopping, getting wider and growing to a broad mound as the season progresses.

    • LOVE LOVE LOVE ..I am a beginner ..big gardens this summer and this is my favorite ..so romantic and soft looking and feeling, bees butterflies and catepillars love it ..it smells absolutely amazing and for that alone I want more of them. Not obtrusive, but soft dainty beautiful and holds shape. Now I want 10 more of these!!! as they are loved by all of nature and we humans too!!!! An absolute must have. I am going to order about 10 more and plant most together near the lake at our cottage. I like natural looking flowers and these look like they just grew there on their own. Perfection!!!! <3

    • My second season growing this nepeta and it is FAR superior to the big box store varieties. PW's nepeta has stronger stems and is more densely leaved with reliable & longer lasting blooms. The foliage doesn't yellow like my other varieties. It remains attractive with blue-green leaves when sheered back.

    • I love mine! It just keeps on blooming. Update: I planted this in 2014 and it is so reliable, it comes up every year and keeps on blooming in a nice tidy shaped mound
