Nepeta faassenii 'Blue Wonder'

Catmint

6" tall spikes bearing bright blue flowers make this selection an excellent choice for cutting gardens and flower borders. When cut back after its first round of bloom, it reblooms reliably until frost. Grey-green foliage remains relatively short and won't grow out of bounds like some catmints.
