Nepeta Subsessilis 'Blue Dreams'
This lovely Japanese plant from Honshu has a more compact, upright habit than many catmints, bearing fat spikes of unusually large flared pinkish-blue trumpets on stubby spikes above sweetly fragrant foliage. This treasure is one of the very largest flowered catmints, and being native to damp areas of Japan, it is also more tolerant of moisture than other species.
Sow immediately at any time onto preferably a soil-based compost, covering with fine grit to approximately their own depth. Germination MAY be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. but many seeds WILL NOT come up the year they are sown, needing winter chilling after sowing, and ONLY come up with natural spring germination.
Common name:Short-stalked catmint
