‘Walker’s Low’ Catmint is an award-winning cultivar of the Eurasian mint Nepeta racemosa. This mounding aromatic perennial has multiple square grayish stems reaching 2 – 3′ in height and width.  Deep purple tubular flowers bloom from late spring into early fall sit atop arching spiky stalks, which often obscure the equally beautiful gray-green oval to heart-shaped leaves. A low maintenance and remarkably unaggressive mint, ‘Walker’s Low’ is noteworthy for its high versatility, whether used in rock gardens, bounding perennial borders, within wildscapings, or as an aromatic groundcover. The spreading clumps grow best in average, dry to medium, well-drained soils under full sun to part shade. Robust and tough, this mint tolerates dry soils, drought, humidity, and salt, as well as deer and rabbit. The rich blueish-purple flowers are favored by butterflies and may be prolonged by deadheading spent blooms.
