(aka: Nepeta 'Novanepjun') We have been very impressed with Nepeta x faassenii 'Junior Walker'...a sterile dwarf form of the famed Nepeta 'Walker's Low' from Pennsylvania's Nova Flora. Developed via a gamma ray treatment of Nepeta 'Walker's Low' and bearing the same name as the famed Motown musician, this compact catmint makes a 15" tall x 4' wide, extremely floriferous clump topped with sprays of small pale lavender flowers held just above the foliage. For us, Nepeta 'Junior Walker' starts flowering in mid-April (NC) and continues until September, although in summer heat, not at the same pace as in spring.
