Types of Drought-Tolerant Nepeta Perennials
Multiple varieties of drought-tolerant nepeta perennials are available, providing gardeners with dozens of choices. A favorite choice of our nursery experts is the award-winning drought-tolerant nepeta walker’s low perennial, which features blooms that resemble lavender.
While exploring the types of drought-tolerant nepeta perennials for sale, you’ll notice a few differences between varieties. From their mature size to their preferred growing zone, as well as the color of their flowers, each type is unique. All, however, share a fondness for full sunlight to partial shade and well-drained soils.
Why Plant Drought-Tolerant Nepeta Perennials?
For homes in less-than-ideal areas for lavender, drought-tolerant nepeta perennials often serve as a substitute. They’re a hardier plant than lavender — enduring heat, deer and dry soil — and offer a distinct fragrance that brings a sensory experience to your gardens.
Plant your drought-tolerant nepeta perennials in a variety of places. From your rock and herb gardens to your border fronts and naturalized areas. You can also use some low-growing varieties as a groundcover. And, of course, you can bring clippings indoors for your cats.
Tips for Choosing the Right Variety of Drought-Tolerant Nepeta Perennials
As you browse the varieties of drought-tolerant nepeta perennials to buy, it’s essential to think about how your landscape and their preferences match. To ensure you’re choosing the best type for your home, our nursery experts recommended asking the following questions:
- What growing zone does it need?
- How tall and wide does it become?
- What soil does it prefer?
- How much sunlight does it require?
For instance, if you’re looking at the drought-tolerant nepeta walker’s low perennial, it likes growing zones four through nine. It also reaches a mature height of two feet and a mature spread of 1.5 feet. It thrives in a garden with full sun and dry to average soil.
How to Care for Drought-Tolerant Nepeta Perennials
When they arrive, begin caring for your drought-tolerant nepeta perennials by finding the perfect spot for them. Go for a space with average, well-drained soil and plenty of sunlight. Next, create a hole that’s twice as wide as your perennial’s root system — but not any deeper than it.
While you can add some fertilizer like Bio-Tone, our nursery experts recommend that you avoid using compost, as these perennials tend to prefer a drier soil. For watering your drought-tolerant nepeta perennials, give them a deep, five-second watering as they establish themselves.
