Nepeta nervosa 'Pink Candy' (Large Plant)

Catmint

Hardy Perennial

This compact variety of Catmint makes a pretty feature for the front of borders, cut flower gardens and wildlife areas. Upright spikes of lavender-pink flowers appear from June to September above a mound of grey-green foliage. Like all Catmints, Nepeta nervosa 'Pink Candy' is a magnet for bees and the aromatic foliage drives cats to distraction! With its neat, bushy habit, this cultivar can easily be grown in patio containers, needing little attention throughout the season. Height: 60cm (24"). Spread: 30cm (12").

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.
