Plant profile: Nepeta “junior walker”
This time of year, it’s hard to ignore this lavender beauty. “Junior Walker” is one of my favorite varieties. Hardy, sun loving, deer resistant, this plant is one of the easiest perennials out there. The mint green stems and lavender flowers stand out in any garden and combine with virtually anything. And did I mention season long color?! It’s one of the earliest bloomers and continues well into September. This is one of my go to plants. For a space saving variation, try ‘blue wonder’. For a bold impact plant a row or grouping of 3 or more. For a striking combination, plant with ‘moonshine’ yarrow
