Lovely Catmint!
Review by Pat M.
It stays very nice and short. Pretty plant, lots of blossoms. I am now keeping it in pots, as here in Tucson, it is almost too hot and dry to keep it going in the ground. I also had problems with Kangaroo Rats and Pack Rats chewing it up. I had to put wire cages around it in my garden.
