Nepeta faassenii 'Walker's Low' Catmint



Nepeta faassenii 'Walker's Low' is a compact plant with gray-green, fragrant foliage and spikes of soft lavender-blue flowers. Named for its original location, rather than its size, Nepeta 'Walker's Low' is a substantial perennial that will make a statement in the landscape when it is in bloom. It may be cut back to promote heavy re-blooming. 'Walker's Low' is a favorite of landscapers and homeowners alike. It makes a nice substitute for Lavender and is a good plant for pollinators.

We ship via UPS or USPS (the Post Office), and their ship rates are automatically generated through our site. We do not profit on shipping costs. We are working with these providers to get our customers the best rates possible.

All ship times are subject to change if extreme weather conditions are present here at the nursery or at the shipping destination.

Please note: Depending on the time of year, the foliage of the plants may be trimmed to fit into our shipping boxes. This could delay the flowering of the plant, but many perennials actually benefit from being cut back.

We are currently not able to ship to Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and outside of the US.
