Nepeta 'Picture Purrfect' PP34502 (25) Bare Root Plants
Common Name: Catmint
A new must-have for landscapers! 'Picture Purrfect' has a similar compact height to 'Kitten Around' but has a much broader habit and blooms about two weeks earlier, depending on temperature. Compared to the Nepeta faassenii varieties, the blue purple flowers are noticeably larger and a bluer toner than average. A perfect choice for 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.
Nepetas are easy to grow perennials that provide a beautiful show of color all summer long. They prefer to be planted in full sun and ordinary, well-drained soil. Shearing the plant back in the springtime will promote more compact growth. In addition, cutting plants back by half after their first bloom tends to stimulate a second bloom cycle.
