Illinois' Best


Nepeta sibirica 'Souvenir d'Andre Chaudron'

A hardy, robust species

Siberian catnip is taller than most catnip. Gray-hued foliage covers this upright, creeping plant, which grows 2' wide by 3' tall. Lavender-blue flowers appear in the summer months. It is a pretty, though invasive, addition to the garden.
