Description

Nepeta faassenii 'Cat's Pajamas' has deep blue blooms that cover the short plants from soil to tips. The remaining rosy purple calyxes continue the interest once flowers drop. Also known as Catmint, this floriferous perennial is nice for edging and containers, and is short enough to use as a ground cover. The fragrant green foliage of Nepeta 'Cat's Pajamas' deters rabbits and deer from nibbling, but it is appealing to some cats. This is a Proven Winner variety.

Nepeta 'Cat's Pajamas' prefers full sun and well-drained, average soil. It is drought tolerant once established.

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.
