'Cat's Pajamas' is a smaller-scale version of 'Cat's Meow,' as well as being an earlier bloomer. The plant forms into a ball and holds dark stems carrying indigo-blue flowers. The small green leaves are small, and surrounded by rosy purple calyxes. The leaves are also aromatic, which deters deer and rabbits.
Cat's Pajama's Catmint
Gorgeous all-summer and unbowed by heat and drought!
Glowing like a blue flame in the summer sun, this perennial is truly the cat's meow! Great news for arid gardens, Nepeta was built to endure summer's worst tendencies. No matter what the season throws at it - extreme heat or drought - this sun-loving classic stays colorfast and lovely all summer long. This variety looks gorgeous planted in mass, tucked in borders, and bursting out of containers. As if its beauty and vigor weren't enough of a draw, 'Cat's Pajamas' is attractive not only to appreciative horticulturalists but to every manner of bee, butterfly and hummingbird as well! The green foliage releases a scent that we find pleasant but that deer despise so you don't have to worry about it being nibbled by these common pests. 'Cat's Pajamas' is easy to grow, easier to love, and a must have for just about any avid gardener.
