Nepeta Junior Walker™ 'Novanepjun' Growing and Maintenance Tips

Prefers well-drained soil in full sun and is ideally suited to a container or wall planting as it is very drought tolerant. Cut back to promote a new flush of growth and to prolong flowering season. Propagate by division or cuttings in early summer. Flowers are sterile. Best used as a low growing groundcover, rock gardens, or edging in the perennial garden.
