Nepeta 'Early Bird'
An early blooming Catmint with a compact habit: only 12″ tall with fragrant gray-green foliage. Violet flowers appear between April and August.
Nepeta are ornamental herbs with long-blooming, lavender-blue flower spikes. The shorter varieties resemble a vigorous English lavender. Foliage is scalloped and gray-green, helping them to blend well in any garden. Can be used as informal edging platens. All need good drainage and do best in full sun. Cut back after bloom for a flush of fresh foliage.
