Product Details

Product Details

Like others in the Nepeta genus, 'Walker's Low' offers delicately hairy gray-green leaves with a tangy, fresh fragrance that a friend calls "spicy mint." Clouds of small purplish blue flowers are carried on 8–9" spikes for several weeks in midsummer. Plants don't tend to split in the center as other Nepetas do. A rough shearing (cut stems back by about ⅔) after bloom keeps the plants' habit neat and will encourage some repeat bloom until frost.

Most Nepetas are thrifty plants that prosper in average, well-drained soils, and the majority offer deliciously fragrant, gray-green foliage and numerous spikes of small flowers, generally in the blue to purple range. They are durable, hardy, and pest free. Like Catnip, the best-known member of the genus, Nepetas may send felines into a frenzy.

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

Another winner!

We love this plant. It is just the perfect finishing touch to our front porch flowerbed. It grows so quickly. No blooms on it yet, but there are budding signs.

This hardy plant is a beautiful garden workhorse requiring little care while giving so much. Bees love this weed suppressing plant. I purchased several about 5 years ago and those have provided additional "babies" to transplant. Clumps increase in size over time and they blossom again though the season after first blossoms fade. During trimming or transplanting a minty aroma is released.

Amazingly hardy

The year I bought this, everything else I ordered died. It was a hot, hot dry summer followed by a cold, cold winter. Five years on, this plant is so huge I had to divide it out. It is one of the most consistent performers in my garden and I adore it.

Hardy continuous bloomer...

I bought this plant in 2016 for a sunny bed. It flourishes in our very poor clay soil and is very drought tolerant. It’s a beauty but it does require a bit of controlling. It pairs well with coreopsis and seems to make the bumblebees happy.

Latin Name Pronunciation: nep'eh-tuh  

Plant Nepeta in full sun or partial shade, and in well-drained soil. Tolerates drought. Cut plants back hard—to just a few inches tall—after the first wave of flowers to keep plants compact and to encourage repeat bloom.

Cats are almost as enamored of Catmints as they are of Catnip (which belongs to the same genus). You may need to protect plants (especially the first season after planting) to prevent them from being mauled. The foliage of N. nervosa lacks the spicy scent produced by the leaves of the other Catmints and is probably less attractive to cats.
