Planting+

Nepeta x faassenii grows and flowers well in a spot in full sun in loose, poor soil.

Nepeta x faassenii is a border plant that just loves being in the garden. Prepare a large hole and loosen the soil thoroughly with a fork. Plant your catmint at the correct depth in the hole – top of the root ball should be just below ground level. Fill the hole with soil and heel well in. Water immediately after planting.

Nepeta x faassenii in the border

The flower spikes of the grey catmint form the focal point in any border. Mix these lavender blue flowers in varied ways with woundwort (Stachys officinalis ‘Rosea’), phlox and delphinium – or with ornamental grasses. Grey catmint looks especially impressive when planted in large groups.

Care+

Nepeta x faassenii is an easily grown perennial that can stay planted in the same spot for years. A drought resistant plant that really only needs extra water in very dry periods.

This is a vigorous plant that is happy even in poor soil conditions so requires no feeding at all. If you do feed it the plant will grow even larger.

After flowering you can cut the whole plant back to 10 cm above the ground. This encourages new flower spikes and so extends the flowering season.

Nepeta x faassenii over the winter

Waterlogged soil especially in the winter will not be tolerated by this plant. In winter the stems above ground die back.  Very hardy, as long as the soil drains well. Cut off all leaves in the spring and you will soon see new shoots appear above ground.
