Catmint Fever: Find out why it’s one of our favorite perennials!

This perennial powerhouse is loved for its fragrant purple/blue flowers and its easy going nature. It adapts to most soil types… so just add sun and you can grow catmint in your home!

A Go-To Transition Plant

We love Catmint because its soft color palette allows it to blend in with the other plants in your yard while also providing blooms during that transition period between spring and summer. Catmint is a pollinator favorite

Like its close relative, Salvia, Catmint can be trimmed back after its initial bloom to encourage a second round of color. This also helps the plant look well kept throughout the year.

 

Catmint care

As mentioned earlier, this plant is a sun lover and does best with full to part sun. It grows to be anywhere from 6 inches to 8 feet tall and 12 to 36 inches wide.

Catmint is a deer resistant plant that is drought tolerant, also not to be confused with catnip.
