This easy East Asian member of the Mint Family provides the garden with lots of its exotic looking blooms during the hot summer months. Many gardeners who have grown the white variety of this plant are thrilled to discover this more uncommon Lavender form. The two make excellent companions and a nice display when planted together. Plants with animal names are always fun for children?s gardens and the butterflies that Cat?s Whiskers attract make them even more valuable for such use. They perform great in containers as well.
