Nepeta x faassenii Kitten Around

Catmint, Catnip

A popular newer, more compact variety of catmint. 

Bright rosy purple calyxes hold periwinkle blue flowers. The perfect size for containers, edging the sunny border or filling in small spaces in the garden.

When Nepeta's stems are broken, they release an aroma into the air that tends to attract cats, thus its common name, Catmint.
