With its alluring minty scent, compact mounding habit, and pollinator-attracting flowers, the Whispurr™ Pink Catmint (Nepeta x faassenii ‘Whispurr Pink’) is a must-have in any sunny perennial garden. This fast-growing perennial has vibrant-green, mint-like leaves and produces strong, upright flower spikes packed with tubular, ballet-slipper-pink flowers flecked with white. Whispurr™ Pink blooms in the spring through summer. 

Once established, this drought- and heat-tolerant plant needs minimal water and maintenance, and can withstand hotter climates without sacrificing its blooms. Growing 24-28 inches tall and 18-24 inches wide, Whispurr™ Pink is ideal as a mounding border plant or as a worryfree potted patio plant. This catmint works well as a “spiller” plant, as it tends to cascade over the edge of containers and borders. Its minty scent makes it deer resistant, perfect for a sunny garden in a woodsy area. Like the name suggests, catmint is known to be a favorite plant of our feline friends. 

Whispurr™ Pink Catmint Care

Catmint grows well in average well-draining soil and needs regular watering in its first year. Once established, catmint tends to thrive without much care, even during periods of high heat and drought. To plant it, dig a hole that is twice the width as the root ball and of equal depth. For best results, plant Whispurr™ Pink Catmint in full to part sun where it can get at least 5 hours of sun a day. 

Catmint can grow well in nutrient-poor soil and does not need fertilizer, though it may benefit from the application of a slow-release fertilizer in early spring. As a vegetative perennial, it is common for Catmint to die back in the winter, and the old branches can be cut back 4-6 inches above the soil in the early spring before new growth arrives. Trim back spent blooms in the summer to keep Whispurr™ Pink Catmint looking neat and tidy.

Whispurr™ Pink Catmint Spacing

Space catmint plants about 18 inches apart and away from others to allow for growth. Like other perennials in containers, choose a large pot with adequate drainage to allow Whispurr™ Pink room to grow.

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.
