What is the name of this beautiful purple flower and will it grow in Georgia? - Will these flowers grow in the shade? Are they perennials?

This is Nepeta racemosa 'Walker's Low'. Perennial. Zone 4 - 8. From the web: "Easily grown in average, dry to medium, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Thrives in dry soils and is very drought tolerant. Somewhat intolerant of the heat and humidity of the deep South..." Check with your local nursery for suitability in your area of Georgia. It is a wonderful plant!
