Marvelette Blue Catmint Perennial - Calamintha nepeta - Quart Pot
Gift wrapping Options available
A compact Catmint from seed offering masses of large, striking, purple-blue flowers on upright spikes the first year. The foliage is mid-green and smells of mint. Terrific for edging a border or growing along a pathway. Also excellent in containers. Flowers are attractive to butterflies. Foliage has a delightful minty fragrance. Easy and reliable, this does not spread around like regular mint. Clumps may be easily divided in early spring. In regions with hot and humid summers this sometimes benefits from a hard clip back in late July, to rejuvenate. Tolerates both dry and moist soils. Since this is in the mint family, the leaves carry a mint scent. Perfect for rock garden enthusiasts and herb gardens. Use in the landscape as you would Nepeta (Catmint).
