Catmint, Pink Panther

Perennial zones 4-9. Compact and tidy, the showy pink blooms of this Japanese catmint attract a range of pollinators. The plants reach just 12-20 inches tall and fit perfectly into beds, borders and containers. Nepeta subsessilis is also known as Japanese catmint. The blooms are larger than other types of catmints, and we especially appreciate the fragrance of the flowers. This bushy and colorful mounding plant is technically a perennial, but it will bloom in the first year and can be treated as an annual.

Growing Tips: Surface sow, gently pressing into soil; cover lightly. Alternately you can start indoors and transplant after last frost. Shear plants occasionally to renew them; self-sows readily. Same genus and species as catnip, but catmint grows in more tidy clumps and does not reseed as easily. Catmint is more ornamental and a bit less tolerant of poor soil and prefers loose, well-drained soil.
