Please be aware Aramax are experiencing significant delays in freight in and around Auckland. We will not send any fragile plants in and around Auckland (unless you tell us too, at your own risk! ), until it is safe to do so. You can still order so you can garauntee plant supply, but please understand there are delays in getting plants to you safely. Freight out of Auckland, Waiheke Island and the South Island are still experiencing significant delays. We are working hard with a limited workforce under strict conditions which is also causing a delay in getting orders to you. We thank you for your patience and investing in upcycled and pre-loved plants, healthier for the environment and healthier for you! :-)
SYN. Nepeta x faassenii
Related to catnip, but much showier, catmints (Nepeta) are easy to grow perennials that not only have flowers in shades of purple-blue, pink and white, but gray-green foliage that remains attractive throughout the growing season as well. The most familiar catmints are those with purple-blue flowers that bloom heavily in early summer. These come in a range of heights, from a foot tall up to as much as 1.0m tall, making them useful in many garden settings, including flower borders, rock gardens, and edging. A classic combination is to grow them with hybrid tea roses to cover the "bare knees" of the rose bushes and complement the many shades of rose blossoms with their soft blue flowers.
