Nepeta x faassenii 'Purrsian Blue'
Description

Lovely periwinkle-blue flowers bloom just above the nicely mounded aromatic foliage from early summer until fall; excellent for containers, beds and borders

Ornamental Features

Purrsian Blue Catmint has masses of beautiful spikes of lightly-scented powder blue flowers with pink calyces rising above the foliage from early summer to early fall, which are most effective when planted in groupings. Its small fragrant pointy leaves remain bluish-green in color throughout the season.

Planting & Growing

Purrsian Blue Catmint will grow to be about 13 inches tall at maturity extending to 18 inches tall with the flowers, with a spread of 30 inches. Its foliage tends to remain dense right to the ground, not requiring facer plants in front. It grows at a fast rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 10 years. As an herbaceous perennial, this plant will usually die back to the crown each winter, and will regrow from the base each spring. Be careful not to disturb the crown in late winter when it may not be readily seen!
