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! :-)

The plant is drought tolerant and deer resistant. It can be a repellant for certain insects, including aphids and squash bugs. Nepeta catarica is a mosquito and fly repellent.
