Plant details

Catmints add a lovely, soft, floppy, gentle touch to cottage gardens, and this hazy, mauve-flowering form has characteristically nettle-like, grey-green foliage. It looks best in long drifts, for example, edging a bed of roses, or encircling a fountain. Light, well-drained soil is the key to success. After the first burst of flowers, shear over the growth to get a second crop of leaves and flowers. Other catmints are available in pale and darker blues.
