2007 Perennial Plant of the Year 18-24" tall x 18" wide (cutting propagated). Named after a place in England, not its growth habit, Nepeta "Walker's Low" is a stunning non-reseeding selection with attractive, crinkled blue-green foliage and a profusion of deep lavender-blue flowers. Shear it back after the first flush of flowers in late spring and it will come back into bloom later in the summer. It thrives in harsh conditions. A rugged, easy-to-grow addition to any xeriscape, 'Walker's Low" makes a fine companion plant to silver-leaved Artemisia or Blue Avena Grass (Helictotrichon).

Tips for Growing Lavender

The catmints (Nepeta) are some of our best garden perennials being long-lived, very easy-to-grow, resistant to browsing animals (deer and rabbits). Catmints are an excellent source of nectar for honeybees and butterflies and are a great beginner's perennial.

Many species are excellent in the xeric (low-water garden) and they grow well in a wide range of soil types, including dry clay. They grow well with at least a half day of sun, but flower best in full sun. We recommend planting only sterile hybrids and avoiding any Nepeta that are propagated from seed. The seed-grown catmints can be aggressively weedy, spreading themselves throughout the garden and crowding out neighboring perennials.

The varieties we offer are outstanding, sterile (no seeds), long blooming varieties:

  • Nepeta faassenii 'Select Blue' - This low growing, non-spreading plant has beautiful lavender-blue flowers. In In early summer after the first flush of flowers have faded, shear off the flower spikes just above the foliage to get the plants to re-bloom again later in the summer.
  • Nepeta 'Walker's Low' - has showy deep blue flowers on tall flower spikes. 'Walker's Low' grows as a neat, non-suckering, well behaved plant and blooms for many months from late spring into mid-summer. Deadheading (shearing off the faded flower spikes just above the foliage) will encourage stronger re-blooming.
