Nepeta faassenii 'Kitten Around'

Catmint

The popular 'Purrsian Blue' changed the way we thought of catmint by giving a solid performance in a cute little package. If that wasn't small enough for you, you'll love 'Kitten Around'! Even more compact and petite than its predecessor, this plant forms a tight, round mound of aromatic foliage. Bright rosy purple calyxes hold periwinkle blue flowers. The perfect size for containers, edging the sunny border or filling in small spaces in the garden.

When Nepeta's stems are broken, they release an aroma into the air that tends to attract cats, thus its common name, Catmint.
