Nepeta mussinii

This aromatic, flowering landscape herb grows in mounds of soft gray-green leaves covered with a haze of shimmering lavender-blue flowers. Easy to grow catmint makes a beautiful spreading ground cover that blooms for weeks on end. Plant it under roses, in an herb garden, at the front of perennials or to cover bare corners of the garden with a soft wave of color. Many house cats adore its fragrance as much as its less attractive relative, catnip.

BEST TO START EARLY INDOORS

In spring, 6 weeks before last expected frost, sow seeds 1 inch apart in a container of seed starting mix. Cover lightly, keep warm and moist, and provide a strong light source. Feed every 2 weeks with half-strength fertilizer. Once seedlings are well-established, transplant 2 to 3 inches apart into deeper containers so root systems have room to develop. When 3 to 4 inches tall, acclimate to outdoor conditions and plant in full sun 12 inches apart.

 TO START OUTDOORS

Plant in full sun in ordinary garden soil in spring when weather is settled and night temperatures are above 50°F (10°C). Sow seeds in well-worked soil 1/4 inch deep and 4 inches apart. Keep evenly moist while waiting for seedlings to emerge. Thin seedlings 12 inches apart.

 GROWING NOTES

Plant drifts of this pretty herbal ground cover in any sunny spot. It grows into 12 inch tall, softly rounded mounds. Once first flush of flowers ends, cut back to about 6 inches and plants will come back into bloom. Many cats enjoy frolicking in Catmint’s sturdy foliage which can handle their affectionate advances.
