The Plants

Nepeta 'Six Hills Giant'

Deep violet to lilac-blue long lasting summer flowers and aromatic mid-green leaves. Clipped back after the first flush in June, it flowers through to early autumn. Useful as an informal, scented edge for paths as, when trodden on, the foliage releases a pleasant aroma. The grey-green foliage is sometimes flattened by cats who can get rather over enthusiastic about it!
