A free-blooming, non-flopping catmint

Nepeta Summer Magic

Nepeta 'Summer Magic' is an outstanding selection that blooms and blooms all summer. The upright, deep lavender blooms are held high above the grass green foliage and never flop. This plant always looks great in a container.

We are proud to be representing this exceptional catmint in partnership with our friends at Plants For Europe in the United Kingdom. Summer Magic is a new, extremely free-flowering grandiflora variety from the UK that blooms continuously from May to September. Grass green leaves and a great deep lavender flower color make for a great garden combination. This new catmint is compact and sturdy and never flops, even in the worst rain storms. You won't attract cats with this selection either. Compared to 'Walker's Low' and 'Six Hills Giant', Summer Magic has a much sturdier habit and never goes through that ugly mid summer phase. Awards: Shortlisted for the New Plant Award at RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2013

Please note: We don't sell plants. Asking your local retailer or googling the plant name is the easiest way to find someone selling our plants.
