I know I’ve mentioned before that candytuft is one of my favorite edging plants, well following a close second is Catmint Walker’s Low. This is not catnip, but a completely different plant. It produces lovely delicate purple flowers on minty scented leaves in well-maintained mounds. (Let’s pause for a minute and admire how much I just sounded like a garden catalogue – Burpees, call me if you are hiring).
Remember my bed that I showed you here, with the candy tuft blooming. Well you can see the candytuft is fading out, just in time for the catmint to rise to the occasion. And yes, that small white furry blob in the lower right corner is Smudge. And the only reason it is small is because it’s about 1/322 of his body.
