Nepeta x faassenii 'Limelight'
Common Name: Catnip Family: Lamiaceae (The Mint Family)

Nepeta x faassenii 'Limelight'
Zoom In Photo:

Lovely lime-green foliage in low, spreading mounds topped by an almost continuous supply of purple flowers all summer long. The low-growing habit makes this a great groundcover or a spiller for containers. Nepeta can be sheared heavily and will reflush with new foliage and flowers.
