Angela and Linda’s Garden Notes:

We are proud to be representing this new catmint in partnership with our friends at Plants For Europe in the United Kingdom.

Summer Magic is a new, extremely free-flowering variety from the UK that blooms continuously from May to September. Grass green leaves and a great deep lavender flower color make for a great garden combination.

This new catmint is compact and sturdy and never flops, even in the worst rain storms. You won’t attract cats with this selection either. Compared to ‘Walker’s Low’ and ‘Six Hills Giant’, Summer Magic has a much sturdier habit and never goes through that ugly mid summer phase.
