We planted Nepeta subsessillis in the spring of 2009, it did nothing. This spring, however, it looks fabulous. It was planted in a container, as I had read that it can be a noxious weed. So far, so good and it's taking some dry, 100 F. plus days. The cats are leaving it alone and it appears to be unappealing to snails.Has a lovely fragrance especially in the evening when it's more humid here (Albuquerque, NM). Frankly, I treasure almost any plant that can survive our climate.
