Nepeta Walkers Low, also known as catmint, is a popular perennial plant that belongs to the mint family. It is a versatile and easy-to-grow plant that is loved by gardeners for its delicate blue-violet flowers and minty fragrance. It is a great choice for a variety of garden settings, including borders, rock gardens, and containers.

Nepeta Walkers Low is a hybrid variety that was developed in the late 1980s by a Dutch nurseryman named Piet Oudolf. It is a cross between two Nepeta species, Nepeta racemosa and Nepeta nepetella. The resulting plant has inherited the best characteristics of both species, such as the compact size and long blooming period of Nepeta racemosa, and the striking blue-violet flowers of Nepeta nepetella.

One of the main featres of Nepeta Walkers Low is its compact size. It typically grows to a height of 12-18 inches, with a spread of 18-24 inches. This makes it an ideal plant for small gardens, as well as for container gardening. Its compact size also makes it easy to maintain and prune, which is an added bonus for busy gardeners.

Another notable feature of Nepeta Walkers Low is its long blooming period. It typically begins blooming in late spring or early summer and continues to bloom through the summer months. The flowers are small and delicate, and they are arranged in spikes that rise above the foliage. The flowers are a beautiful blue-violet color, which contrasts nicely with the gray-green leaves.

Nepeta Walkers Low is also known for its minty fragrance. The leaves and stems of the plant contain essential oils that give off a pleasant minty scent when crushed. This makes it a popular choice for herb gardens, as well as for gardens that are designed to attract bees, butterflies, and other pollinators.

When it comes to growing Nepeta Walkers Low, it is a relatively easy plant to care for. It prefers full sun to partial shade and well-drained soil.

One of the benefits of growing Nepeta Walkers Low is that it is a low-maintenance plant. It does not require much pruning or deadheading, and it is not prone to many diseases or pests. However, it is important to keep an eye out for spider mites, which can sometimes infest the plant. If spider mites are present, they can be treated with a gentle insecticidal soap.

It works well as a border plant, where its compact size and long blooming period make it a great choice for edging pathways or defining garden beds.

And, of course, it is a popular choice for container gardening, where it can be used to add a splash of color and fragrance to patios and balconies.
