    Features

    I was voted MOST LIKELY to THRIVE.

    No catmint is a more beautiful, uniform grower than Cat’s Meow Nepeta. Its flowers are dense and colorful, and its habit is more refined. Plus, it stands strong with no flopping, getting wider and growing to a broad mound as the season progresses.
