Nepeta kubanica Neptune ('Bokratune' PP29556)

Catmint-Large-flowered

This unique Nepeta looks more like a Veronica in habit, bearing large, upright, deep violet-blue flower spikes above the compact foliage. Broad, green leaves form a bushy clump that doesn't open up. This species is thought to have fewer bacterial issues and is less attractive to mites. Reblooms if deadheaded. Introduced by: Concept Plants.
