The first flush of blooms are amazing. Unfortunately that all you really get. I have sheared back as suggested on this site and the reblooms are pretty dismal.

Loved this plant! Unfortunately the neighborhood cats loved it to pieces! Chewed on it and then slept on our driveway in a stupor. Must affect them like catnip! What else would be as pretty without attracting cats?Julie Trinklein, Michigan, United States, 1 year ago
I bought 7 cat payamas from Lowe’s. The picture is true representation. They look fantastic in my garden, they have bloomed nonstop since I planted them, I also heard that they are good for keeping the mosquito away. Very happy with my cat payamas.Marcia Ovalle, Colorado, United States, 1 year ago
I planted several Cat's Pajamas in the spring of 2019. I bought them from a local garden center; they were not very big, but they were healthy, so I crossed my fingers I would see them again the next year. They came back this year twice the size. Very full bloom spikes, just like Proven Winners' pictures. The color and size are also represented well in the pictures. They are the first perennials in my garden to start blooming at the end of April. Bees love them. This is a fantastic plant. I plan on obtaining many more to plant anywhere I can tuck them in.Lisa G., Pennsylvania, United States, 2 years ago
The plants arrived in beautiful condition. The were healthy and blooming. They added instant beauty to my spring garden. I have a feeling they are going to be my new favorite. And, my cat seems to like them. I’m about to order more for a Mother’s Day gift.Lora, Indiana, United States, 2 years ago
