Nepeta x faassenii 'Walker's Low'
Walker’s Low Catmint was the Perennial Plant of the Year in 2007 and is an easy to
grow, pest free perennial. This hybrid Nepeta develops into a mound of aromatic, grayish
green foliage. Lavender-blue flowers appear in spring and continue to bloom if properly
pruned by trimming after initial flowering. Walker’s Low grows 1 to 2 feet high and
1 ½ to 3 feet wide and can be used as edging or in a border, herb or rock garden,
naturalized area, as groundcover, or is quite attractive spilling over the edge of
a wall. Nepeta attracts bees and butterflies. It also tolerates some shade, dry, rocky
soil, and is quite drought and deer resistant.
