'Cat's Pajamas' Catmint (Nepeta) • ROCK 'N GROW'® Sedum • PYROMANIA® Red Hot Poker (Kniphofia)
Using a mixture of perennials with successive flowering periods is a great way to keep pollinators happy in your garden all season long. ‘Cat’s Pajamas’ Nepeta will get things going in late spring with long spikes of purple-blue flowers. Cutting back after bloom will ensure rebloom through the rest of the year. PYROMANIA® Red Hot Poker support the recipe with grass-like foliage to start the season, before adding tall flower spikes in midsummer. The succulent foliage of ROCK ‘N GROW® Sedum will complement the fine textures of the Nepeta and Kniphofia before being covered in blooms in late summer.
