It provides a good groundcover in large-scale plantings without the mat-like effect associated with traditional groundcovers. Its small gray-green leaves and blue color make it a perfect choice as a foil to bolder textures and colors.”

“Catmint has become a reliable companion for me on both coasts of the country,” notes landscape designer Brian Maloney. “On the East Coast, it has become a real workhorse in my recent gardens. It provides a good groundcover in large-scale plantings without the mat-like effect associated with traditional groundcovers. Its small gray-green leaves and blue color make it a perfect choice as a foil to bolder textures and colors.” Botanical name: Nepeta x faassenii 'Walker's Low' Common name: Walker’s Low catmint USDA zones: 3-8 Water requirement: Regular water until established; then low water needs Sun requirement: Prefers full sun; partial shade in hotter climates Mature size: 2-3’ h x 2-3’ spread Growth rate: Medium; faster in warmer climates Tolerances: Drought, deer, rabbit, no significant pest problems Environmental benefits: Attracts butterflies, hummingbirds, bees.

Botanical name: Nepeta x faassenii 'Walker's Low' Common name: Walker’s Low catmint USDA zones: 3-8 Water requirement: Regular water until established; then low water needs Sun requirement: Prefers full sun; partial shade in hotter climates Mature size: 2-3’ h x 2-3’ spread Growth rate: Medium; faster in warmer climates Tolerances: Drought, deer, rabbit, no significant pest problems Environmental benefits: Attracts butterflies, hummingbirds, bees. Your cat will love it, too. by Brian Maloney Design Associates by Brian Maloney Design Associates Distinguishing traits. The billowy, loose, mounding form of Walker’s Low catmint is punctuated every spring and fall with an influx of its identifying purplish-blue flowers. Catmint’s prolific blooms are distinctive and long-lasting, but you can also enjoy the subtle minty aroma of its grayish green foliage year-round. While the name may suggest a vertically challenged specimen, Walker's Low is anything but. Sprawling foliage and upright flower stalks means that this plant is going to grow up and out. by Brian Maloney Design Associates by Brian Maloney Design Associates How to use it. Named for the English garden where it was first selected, Walker’s Low catmint has become synonymous with traditional cottage and perennial gardens as a pathway edging or casually cascading over garden walls. While its dainty purple flower and form can serve as the perfect contrast to a classic English rose garden, there is nothing more modern or forward-thinking in garden design than monochromatic mass plantings, and this plant fits right in. Consider planting a field of catmint — like the garden above — as your frost-friendly lavender replacement. With an open arching form, Walker’s Low catmint can also be used as a groundcover alternative and is an effective and low-maintenance space-filling solution. Don’t worry if you don’t have square footage to spare; catmint is another prime candidate for container gardening. Regardless of where you plant, include a sprig or two in any floral arrangement, as the fragrance of its flowers as well as its foliage will enhance any space. by Brian Maloney Design Associates by Brian Maloney Design Associates Before you plant. You can expect flowers from this plant beginning in early spring, and by shearing the spent flowers and foliage in late summer, you can prolong its bloom and promote new growth well into fall with a second flowering. While individual plants may look dwarfed in their beds after planting or cutting back, they will be back with a vengeance—so give them some room when you plant, spacing 2'–3’ apart. Walker’s Low catmint is as tough and easy to grow as they come. Thriving in sandy well-drained soil, this cold-hardy cultivar can handle freezing temperatures that dip well below 0 degrees Fahrenheit. Take that, seasonal blues!
