Catmint is a very pretty mounding perennial easily grown in average, dry to medium, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. It thrives in dry soils and is drought tolerant. It appreciates some afternoon shade. Must be propagated by division because seeds are sterile.
Catmint grows about 1-2 feet tall and about 2 feet wide. A good trim twice a year keeps the plant more compact and promotes blooms. Catmint flowers are small, and lavender-blue in color. Foliage is aromatic and gray-green in color. It blooms from spring to fall under optimum growing conditions and proper shearing of spent flower spikes.
It works well in rock gardens, border fronts, herb gardens or naturalized plantings. Also a good edging plant or small-scale ground cover.
