A very showy catmint with large blooms of bright lavender from early to late summer that really catches the eye when massed; will bloom in waves all summer

Ornamental Features

Little Trudy Catmint has masses of beautiful spikes of lightly-scented lavender flowers rising above the foliage from early to late summer, which are most effective when planted in groupings. Its small fragrant pointy leaves remain grayish green in color throughout the season. The fruit is not ornamentally significant.

Landscape Attributes

Little Trudy Catmint is a dense herbaceous perennial with a mounded form. Its relatively fine texture sets it apart from other garden plants with less refined foliage.

This plant will require occasional maintenance and upkeep, and is best cleaned up in early spring before it resumes active growth for the season. It is a good choice for attracting bees and butterflies to your yard, but is not particularly attractive to deer who tend to leave it alone in favor of tastier treats. Gardeners should be aware of the following characteristic(s) that may warrant special consideration;

  • Self-Seeding

Little Trudy Catmint is recommended for the following landscape applications;

  • Mass Planting
  • Border Edging
  • General Garden Use

Planting & Growing

Little Trudy Catmint will grow to be only 6 inches tall at maturity extending to 10 inches tall with the flowers, with a spread of 14 inches. Its foliage tends to remain low and dense right to the ground. It grows at a fast rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 10 years.

This plant does best in full sun to partial shade. It is very adaptable to both dry and moist locations, and should do just fine under typical garden conditions. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments. This particular variety is an interspecific hybrid. It can be propagated by division; however, as a cultivated variety, be aware that it may be subject to certain restrictions or prohibitions on propagation.
