Nepeta racemosa (Nepeta racemosa)

I bought this to be a kind of land cover, but I enjoy looking at the little purple flowers

It's also called catmint because cats are said to love rolling in it. My cat, Blodyn, will not go near it lol : )

Mine would eat it right to the stalk. I have to hide these on high shelves or in hanging baskets. Put it in her reach and you note her returning for another chew every half hour or so. lol.
