Nepeta 'Walker's Low' (Faassenii Group)
This stunner is the Perennial Plant Association’s 2007 Plant of the Year. Large flowers, and it makes great ground cover for hot dry sites. Fragrant gray-green foliage, and nice with roses, Achillea, and many hot-colored flowers. Lavender-blue flowers appear between June 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.
