The fantastic Proven Winners® ColorChoice® Cat's Pajamas Catmint (Nepeta x 'Cat's Pajamas') is a fantastic new hybrid Nepeta with neat and tidy little upright clumps of vivid indigo-purple blooms! The incredibly long-lasting blossoms work great in smaller gardens, container gardens, and sunny courtyards, while making up for their size with dramatic splashes of extended color and fragrance!

Cat's Pajamas are aromatic from head to toe, the sage-green leaves are scalloped and textured, looking fantastic even when not in bloom. The neat mounds are low-maintenance and won't take any effort on your part to look great! Snip a few stems for your bouquets and enjoy the long bloom all summer into fall. Even the rosy calyxes left after the flowers fade look ornamental!

Catmints like this hardy hybrid perennial are incredible for tough, sun-drenched locations in the garden and shine brilliantly regardless! Always accompanied by a host of bees and butterflies, even a hummingbird will stop by to visit the nectar-rich spires of blooms! With a more refined habit than others in the family, Cat's Pajamas has the typical Mint family square stems and Mint family calming, soothing use in tea and as a spice.

Planting and Application:

Catmint is a must-have for the pollinator garden, xeric sun garden, and perennial border! The compact mounds create tidy, colorful, and upright edging and act as fantastic facer plants! While the brilliant blooms light up your garden and floral bouquets with their vibrant color!

Smaller and space-saving, they are great for filling large planters and containers on your porch or patio! Try a single plant as a specimen in a balcony or window box or add unexpected color all growing season throughout cottage gardens and as companion plants that chase away pests in the Rose garden!

Cat's Pajamas are tough little perennials! Keep them in the kitchen and herb garden, adorn a Knot Garden, or let them add pops of color to the Rock garden. Blooming their heads off in the hell strip along the road or sidewalk, as fire-wise landscaping barriers, or polite edging along paths and walkways where brushing past them will fill the air with their minty aroma!

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Growing vigorously throughout USDA growing zones 3 through 8, and form a compact, neat mound 12-14 inches tall when in bloom, and 18-20 inches wide at maturity. Nepeta are tough herbaceous perennials that soak up the full sun all day long! Plant in almost any kind of well-drained soil with moderate moisture access. They appreciate a 3-4 inch thick layer of mulch to hold in more moisture and keep their roots cool. Deadhead often to keep the blooms returning, and clean the mounds in late fall after frost. Their aromatic nature keeps deer at bay most of the time, and even chases away pests from plants!

  • Loves Full Sun & Thrives in Most Well-Drained Soil Types
  • Moderate Moisture & Low Water Needs Once Established
  • Deadhead After Flowers Fade & Prune Back Late Fall
  • Drought Tolerant & Urban Conditions
  • Low-Maintenance & Easy To Grow!
