Nepeta (Catmint) is a perennial favorite of gardeners and landscape designers. Catmint produces masses of loose spikes of flowers beginning in spring and continuing into fall. This perennial flower can be cut back to encourage heavy reblooming during the growing season. Catmint prefers full sun to part shade and average to moist, well-drained soil. Its flowers are attractive to bees, butterflies, hummingbirds and other pollinators. Nepeta is deer and rabbit resistant and will tolerate drought once the plant is established.
