catmint, Nepeta x faassenii, growing in my garden. The catmint was planted in late Spring from a three inch pot. I placed it near the steps going down to the perennial garden so it could drape over the ledge. If you deadhead the flowers catmint blooms continuously from Spring to Fall and it keeps a nice compact shape. The small bumblebees and hummingbirds love the nectar of this plant.
irridescent green hummingbird came right up and sipped nectar less than a foot from me. It was quite warm in the late afternoon and I think the hummingbird was very thirsty. The catmint is in the same family as catnip.
salvia, pineapple sage, is blooming all over the ends of the stalks now. I put the chair there so Barney can't sneak up on the hummingbirds.
