Nepeta 'Cat's Pajamas' PPAF (25) Bare Root Plants
Common Name: Catmint
A purr-fect Catmint for fans of 'Cat's Meow' who love the look but want a smaller scale version. In addition to being a little over half the height, 'Cats Pajamas' also blooms about 2-3 weeks earlier than 'Cat's Meow'. The ball-shaped habit carries long, dark flower stems that hold indigo blue flowers. Unlike older varieties that only produce flowers at the top of the stems, this improved Catmint has blooms from the soil to the tips of the stems. Even when the flowers are past peak, the color of the rosy purple calyxes give your garden an additional splash of color. As an added bonus, the small, aromatic leaves keep deer and rabbits away. Try this shorter stature plant in city gardens or near the front of the border.
When Nepeta's stems are broken, they release an aroma into the air that tends to attract cats, thus its common name, Catmint.

This is the second order of nepeta I have received. The first 25 I planted in May and they look gorgeous. This 25 I have planted for my daughter to line a walkway. This plant puts on a great show of color and is a rebloomer. You will not be disappointed with this plant.
I ordered the 25 bare root cats PJ nepeta. I planted all 25 and have a 100% survival rate. They are growing so well. I planted them within one day of receiving them. I made sure to follow all planting directions and I look forward to a great show of color. Mine boarder a rose garden. I have a gardening friend who is green with envy and wants to order some too. I will be placing an order for September delivery because I cannot find this plant anywhere in my area for purchase. Thank you to bloomindesign for offering this plant.
The Nepeta was the first plant I was looking for to line my driveway, saw it on line but know one had it , I find you out of the dozen or so nursery I look at. I talk to a specialist name Mike, he told all about the Nepeta and pick out the Campanula to line my driveway with them, purple and white. WE HAVE 100% SURVIVAL I will send picture when the Nepeta Blooms.
