Catmint 'Walker's Low' - Nepeta racemosa 



Nepeta racemosa, commonly known as Catmint 'Walker's Low', is a compact perennial herbaceous plant prized for its aromatic gray-green foliage and profusion of lavender-blue flowers that bloom from late spring to early summer. This variety thrives in full sun and well-drained soils, reaching a height of about 18-24 inches. Catmint 'Walker's Low' attracts a variety of pollinators, including bees and bumblebees, which are particularly drawn to its abundant nectar. It forms dense mounds of foliage that are deer-resistant and drought-tolerant, making it ideal for borders, rock gardens, and perennial beds. Catmint 'Walker's Low' pairs well with other native species such as Coneflowers (Echinacea spp.) and Butterfly Weed (Asclepias tuberosa), which also attract pollinators and thrive in similar growing conditions. These plants together create a vibrant and ecologically beneficial garden environment, supporting local wildlife and enhancing biodiversity.
