Nepeta Walkers Low, also known as catmint, is a prolific bloomer that produces waves of delicate lavender-blue flowers from late spring to early autumn. Not only does it attract bees and butterflies with its aromatic foliage, but it also thrives in a variety of soil types and tolerates drought once established. Plant Nepeta Walkers Low in sunny borders or rock gardens for a carefree splash of colour.

Echinacea: With its iconic daisy-like blooms and prominent central cones, Echinacea, or coneflower, is a staple of the perennial garden. Available in a range of colours from vibrant purples to soft pinks and whites, Echinacea blooms from midsummer into the autumn, providing a valuable food source for pollinators during the late season.
