Nepeta Assorted - This group of plants came from mixes in our Nepeta reichenbachiana crop and are likely seedlings of this plant. They are variable but likely to grow similarly to this species which is a small low-growing subshrub or perennial to 18 to 30 inches tall by up to 36 inches wide with broad, rounded, sage-green leaves. The lilac-blue flowers are held in 4-6 inch long clusters that rise above the foliage from mid-spring well into summer. Plant in almost any type of soil in full sun. It is hardy to 10-15 F.  This description is based on our research and observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in the nursery garden and in other gardens that we have visited. We will also incorporate comments received from others and always appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have some additional information about this plant, in particular if this information is contrary to what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Nepeta 'Assorted'.
