Plant Description

‘Walkers Low’ catmint is a beautiful perennial with gray-green aromatic foliage on long, arching stems. Lavender-blue spikes of flowers are produced continuously from late spring until frost if it is pruned back by 2/3rds after the initial flowers fade. It will thrive in full sun and average to dry, neutral soil where it grows about 2 feet high and 2-3 feet wide. It is so easy and rewarding, that it was awarded the title of Perennial Plant of the Year for 2007 by the Perennial Plant Association. Its soft gray and blue colors, and its billowy habit, combine beautifully with just about every perennial for full sun. It is very effective when massed as a ground cover, when allowed to cascade over a wall, or when used individually. Bees and butterflies love it but deer and rabbits don’t. New this year!
