Description

Pleasing mint fragrance!

You don't have to worry about these stems flopping under the weight of the magnificent blooms.

Plant Patent Applied For.

Love Catmint but hate the flop?! 'Purrsian Blue' is the solution! This dense, heavily floriferous new variety offers "flop-proof" color all summer long in a neat, tidy habit!

Naturally rounded, this fragrant little plant covers itself in bright blue blooms from the first hint of warm summer weather until autumn arrives. The flowers themselves are periwinkle-blue, surrounded by a darker violet calyx. Showy, intensely bright, and so profuse, they really pop in the perennial border or herb garden!

'Purrsian Blue' reaches just 16 to 18 inches high, and spreads 24 to 28 inches wide in the sunny garden or container. The foliage is tiny, dark green, and deliciously scented with a spicy mintish aroma. Cats aren't the only ones who find this plant irresistible!

Butterflies and hummingbirds are drawn to 'Purrsian Blue' for its nectar, while rabbits, deer, and other nibbling creatures avoid it because of its fragrance. It's the perfect combination!

Our friends at Walters Gardens came up with this fantastic new plant (don't you love the name?), and we think 'Purrsian Blue' is destined to be a success. After all, we all love the idea of Catmint in the garden, and now we can show off a plant that won't look tired by midsummer, no matter how many times Freckles and Mittens roll in it! Zones 3-8.

Lovely Catmint!

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

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.
