Ornamental Value

A short soft textured perennial for the summer landscape. With proper care Junior Walker Catmint will bloom from May through September, which is an unusually long bloom time for most perennial plants. Catmint loves those hot, dry, sunny locations of your landscape that may be difficult to plant areas. The fuzzy gray-green foliage becomes smothered with lavender-blue flowers that will gently sway in the breeze. This long lasting perennial is one of our favorites to use in the sun garden of our clients and we are sure you will love it too!
