Nepeta x faassenii ‘Six Hills Giant’ is a perennial that has grey-green foliage, which is covered all summer in masses of short spikes of lavender-like flowers which attract lots of bees. Once established, the plant is fairly drought-tolerant. The foliage is very aromatic and, when crushed or bruised, releases a strong lemony scent, hence the popularity of the plant for edging paths.  Leaves may be harvested and dried for use in potpourri. Ideal for cottage, meadow and dry gardens. This is a long-blooming perennial, making it a great filler plant if you're striving for a continual sequence of bloom.

 

Grow Nepeta x faassenii ‘Six Hills Giant’ in well-drained soil in full sun. It will grow in most soil but it's needs to be well-draining. Lift and divide congested clumps in spring.  Light, well-drained soil is the key to success. After the first burst of flowers, shear over the growth to get a second crop of leaves and flowers.
