Description

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.
