Nepeta racemosa (Large Plant)

Catmint, Nepeta mussinii

Hardy Perennial

With a low, spreading habit, Nepeta racemosa makes good ground cover, and is perfect for softening the edges of paths and borders. From June to September this attractive Catmint bears a profusion of violet-purple flower spikes that smother the mid-green leaves. Like all Nepeta, this hardy perennial is always busy with bees and has a peculiar effect on cats who adore its aromatic foliage. Height: 30cm (12"). Spread: 45cm (18").

Culinary note: The strong, minty/spicy flavoured flowers can be used sparingly in pasta or rice dishes. For more details about edible flowers click here.
