Nepeta x faasenii "Walker’s Low"-
Members of the Perennial Plant Association have just chosen this winner as their "Perennial of the Year" for 2007 and it does deserve it. Grey-green foliage with bluish-purple flowers from April to October. Tough, easy to grow perennial, asking only a well-drained soil with good light. Drought resistant when established. This prolific bloomer benefits from a shearing several times during the season to remove spent flowers. 18-24" high. Named for the English garden Walker’s Low. Hardy in zones 5-9. Relation to Catnip, but has no attraction to cats. Also so far, this seems to have little attraction to deer.
