Product Overview

Purrsian Blue Catmint is a low-maintenance perennial that blooms from Summer to fall and attracts bees, butterflies and hummingbirds. Its trumpet-shaped, periwinkle blue flowers are fragrant and bloom throughout the Summer and into fall. Growing 14 in. to 18 in.

What’s the best place to plant it in the ground or a pot

Asked by LLeslie May 9, 2020

Answer

Hello, This plant grows best in the ground. It can be potted for a season, and then transplanted in the fall though.

How large is the pot it is delivered in?

Ordered three plants. Didn't know they were coming as dormant roots. I thought I was getting potted plants. Only 1 is starting to sprout. I ended up going to a nursery and buying full potted plants that were already blooming for just a few dollars more.
