Nepeta x faassenii Junior Walker™ ('Novanepjun'), commonly called Junior Walker™ Catmint, is a compact dwarf form of ‘Walker’s Low’ with unlimited uses. It blooms all summer with spikes of scented, lavender-blue flowers. It has small gray-green leaves that have a minty smell. It is highly adaptable to most garden conditions and a choice plant for attracting pollinators.  

This perennial has a spreading, dense habit that reaches 12 – 18 inches tall and 2 – 3 feet wide. It is a sterile form of nepeta that doesn’t self-seed. This catmint is easy to grow and tolerates drought, humidity and heat. It is cold hardy to zone 4 and resistant to deer and rabbits. The flowers attract swarms of bees and butterflies in the summer. Use it at the front of perennial borders and foundation plantings for cottage and Mediterranean style gardens. Junior Walker™ also looks great in container combinations as the ‘thriller’. 

Junior Walker™ Catmint Care

This perennial grows well in full sun to part shade. It is highly adaptable to different soil types, including clay and sand, and is not picky about soil pH. It also adaptable to different moisture levels, as long as the soil drains well. Water consistently during the first summer to establish the roots. It will develop drought tolerance after a few growing cycles. 

Cut the foliage back before flowering to keep its shape compact. Removing spent flowers will encourage it to rebloom.

Junior Walker™ Catmint Spacing

For mass planting, space individual plants approximately 24 inches apart, center on center, and stagger the rows.If growing in a container, select a pot that is weather resistant with good drainage. The pot diameter should be at least 20 inches.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
