'Whispurr™ Pink' Nepeta is an extremely robust cultivar with extra-large flower clusters. The 1-2-inch-wide plumes are larger than most Nepeta, formed by a collection of soft pink flowers that open in mid-spring. The mounds of foliage give off a wonderful minty fragrance, making them a deer-resistant delight along walkways, or stone walls where they can drape over the edge.

With unusual soft pink blooms, 'Whispurr™ Pink' Nepeta is an extremely robust cultivar with extra-large flower clusters. Nepeta is an excellent, easy-to-grow perennial for the Mediterranean-style garden, rock garden, or any sunny border. They do very well in average soils, and are popular with gardeners who desire low-maintenance pollinator-friendly gardens. Gentle flower spikes are held above gray-green foliage with small, softly fuzzy leaves that add an interesting element of texture to the garden. The fragrance deters four-legged pests. Contrast them with the hot colors of summer favorites like Echinacea and Coreopsis, or pair them with soothing silvery Lavender. After the first flush of bloom, deadhead the plant to prevent messy spreading and to encourage further flowering. Cut the plant down to the soil line in early spring to make way for new growth.
