This is NEPETA "Walkers Low" Catmint. In Zone 8, they THRIVE and are LONG Blooming, especially if you deadhead them, you will get almost continuous bloom! Starts blooming in spring, another flush in summer, and then, ANOTHER flush in Fall...if you deadhead the spent flowers! Drought resistant too after established. give it PLEANTY of room to grow, about 3'.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Margaret Everton added this to Taking Design Notes From Coco Chanel
Coco said that "a girl should be two things: classy and fabulous." No matter what your style or dwelling, make it classy, make it fabulous, make it yours.
The classic Russian Sage (Perovskia, USDA zones 6 to 9) gives lavender a run for its money as the most common purple plant in today's gardens. Easily massed and faster growing than lavender, this plant seems to mass and mix with ease in almost any environment.

Love this in New Mexico and it would also work here. Russian Sage (Perovskia, USDA zones 6 to 9) gives lavender a run for its money as the most common purple plant in today's gardens. Easily massed and faster growing than lavender, this plant seems to mass and mix with ease in almost any environment.
