Common Name: Catmint, Catnip

 Like ‘Cat’s Meow’, this selection shares an improved tidy habit, though it is a bit smaller and more compact in size overall.  In its first year, ‘Purrsian Blue’ forms a small, perfectly rounded, densely branched clump of tiny, green leaves.  In year two, the plant maintains its compact mounding habit but nearly doubles its spread to just over two feet across. 

This is a very floriferous selection whose flower power is amplified by its having its flowers spaced closely together on the stems.  Periwinkle blue flowers are coddled by dark purple calyxes just above the aromatic foliage from early summer into early fall.
