Nepeta Purrsian Blue
Nepeta Purrsian Blue

Catmint

We love 'Purrsian Blue' for its neat and tidy habit and its masses of bloom all summer long. This wonderful little edger has a naturally rounded habit and produces masses of bright, periwinkle blue flowers with a darker calyx from mid summer until frost. The dark green leaves are very tiny, and have a pleasing minty fragrance that keeps rabbits and other nibblers away. Butterflies and hummingbirds are attracted to the nectar rich blooms. At just over 30 centimetres tall , 'Purrsian Blue' is an excellent edger for shrub and perennial borders and the perfect companion for roses.
