Buy Nepeta × faassenii Junior Walker ('Novanepjun') (PBR) catmint: Low-growing and long-flowering

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.


  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    When in bloom throughout the summer, the flowers of this new, sterile catmint will be buzzing with bees. A compact grower, with aromatic foliage (that cats will love), it will look great lining the edges of a path where you can enjoy the scent each time you brush past. It will also work really well in a pot.

  • Garden care: Cut back after the initial flowers have faded to encourage more to form. Lift and divide large clumps in spring, replanting divided specimens with lots of well-rotted organic matter. If powdery mildew becomes a problem prune out the affected areas.

Nepeta Junior walker is ideal for the front of a border as the don't grow too high. I have roses growing behind, which provides a lovely backdrop. The plants have died right back over winter, as expected, so I am hoping that they come again in the spring.
