Description
This is the big winner--the Perennial Plant of the year for 2007. All catnips, or catmints are members of the mint family, but this one was chosen because its such a big improvement over the old weedier catnips. Walkers Low is just as popular with cats, it just makes a more beautiful show in the garden. From late spring to mid summer, you'll be treated with lush purple spikes of flowers, and your cat will be treated to all the pleasures of catnip.

      Comments about American Meadows Nepeta faassenii Walker's Low - Plant:

      I live in southern California and wanted a "Lavendar Field" in my landscape. However, lavendar was too picky about watering and drainage. Planted about 200 of these plants in rows on a hillside and have been able to achieve the same visual effect as with lavendar. This catmint does not smell like lavendar. However, this variety does not smell like catmint, either. It has a very light scent which is NOT attractive to my cats. This is a real bonus because normally cats will absolutely detroy the plants. This variety is supposed to be sterile and does not set seed. However, I do get an occasional plant that seems to be the same variety. It could be a runner that roots to make a new plant.

      In my area (Zone 8 bordering Zone 9), the plants bloom early (May to June). If I shear the spent flowers in July, not only does the field look neater, but there is a second bloom in September to October. They respond well to a timed release fertilizer for roses or vegetables. Plants are dormant in the winter then start to grow again in March. No pests other than a few gophers. Wish the plant stayed green all winter, but then that is not the fault of the plant - it's an herb!
