Nepeta 'Purrsian Blue' is a popular addition to our plant selection, earning its place with distinctive qualities that delight both its gardeners and pollinators alike. This catmint variety boasts compact mounds of aromatic, grey-green foliage, creating a textured backdrop that accentuates its vibrant blooms. The abundant spikes of deep violet-blue flowers not only add a burst of colour to your garden but also serve as a pollinator magnet, attracting bees, butterflies, and other beneficial insects. Distinguished by its exceptional contribution to biodiversity, 'Purrsian Blue' holds the prestigious RHS Plants for Pollinators award, highlighting its value in supporting local ecosystems. Its resilience, adaptability, and the abundance of nectar-rich blossoms contribute to the well-being of pollinating insects, making it a meaningful addition to any garden. Furthermore, this Nepeta variety is honoured with the RHS Garden Merit, reflecting its overall excellence in performance and suitability for UK gardens. With 'Purrsian Blue,' we offer a garden gem that not only enchants with its fragranced blooms but also plays a vital role in fostering a thriving and pollinator-friendly environment. We notice it flourishes in pots and containers and it perfectly pairs with Achilleas, Penstemons and Salvias.

Planting Conditions

To establish a thriving Nepeta 'Purrsian Blue,' select a planting site that receives abundant sunlight, as this perennial thrives in full sun. Ensure well-drained soil, incorporating organic matter to enhance fertility. Plant in early Spring, spacing them adequately to encourage air circulation. Nepeta is adaptable to various soil types but excels in slightly alkaline to neutral ph. This catmint variety is known for its low-maintenance nature, making it an excellent choice for sunny borders and herb gardens. With proper attention to planting conditions, 'Purrsian Blue' will reward your garden with its aromatic foliage and charming blue-purple blooms.

Watering & Feeding

Efficient watering and feeding are key to nurturing Nepeta 'Purrsian Blue.' During the initial season, provide regular watering to facilitate establishment. Once settled, this catmint variety showcases its resilience by becoming heat and drought-tolerant. Adopt a moderate feeding routine, avoiding excessive fertilisation. These adaptive traits, coupled with a well-balanced watering and feeding routine, contribute to the plant's robust health, ensuring a vibrant and aromatic display in your garden while minimising water requirements for sustainable cultivation.

General Care

In spring apply a layer of organic mulch around the planting area, this helps keep the roots cool, retain soil moisture and deter weeds while giving plants the nutrients they need to remain healthy. Remove faded flowers to prolong flowering. Once flowering has finished leave the tired foliage in place over Winter to help protect the crown, wait until early Spring to cut it back. To keep Catmint vigorous, divide it every three to four years in either Spring or early Autumn.
