    • 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.

      Above Average Superior performance, among my favorites, would recommend to others.
    • 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.

    • Not indigo blue. Doesn’t resemble tag color. Color on proven winner site much more accurate than the blue of the tag. Very dissatisfied with color.
