Plant Information

14-16” tall x 31-35” wide. Nepeta Junior Walker™ brings massive bloom power to small spaces and draws hummingbirds and bees to the garden. A hardy, waterwise perennial, Junior Walker™ is sized just right for patio pots and containers. They also perform beautifully in any well-drained soil. Plant them in cottage or butterfly gardens for rustic flair. With small, sage-colored leaves, Junior Walker™ also looks at home in Mediterranean-style plantings. Plants benefit from afternoon shade in hot climates. Water well the first season to establish a strong root system. Plants can tolerate drought once established. A quick snip of spent flowers in early summer will promote new growth and fresh blooms. Cut plants back in late-winter before growth resumes.

Q & A

Plant With These:

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
