Moisture retentive soil
Well drained soil
Named for the curved form of its violet-blue flowers neatly arranged in rings at intervals along its tall willowy stems, it is perfect for a wildlife or gravel garden, attracting bees in droves.
This Nepeta is an unusual one with pale lemon-yellow flowers that appear over very fragrant lemon scented foliage. It would be ideal planted where you can benefit from this light fragrance given off..
The grandiflora Nepetas have an erect and upright habit not requiring any staking. This form has pale pink flowers that contrast well with their dark flower stems.
This excellent variety would be an ideal substitute for a lavender hedge in soils where lavender does not thrive. It was a new introduction in 2013, launched at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
Spikes of dark purple flowers are held on upright stems during summer. A wonderful plant for pollinating insects.
