Nepeta kubanica (Catmint) [15 Seeds]


Germination Information: I recommend these seeds for experienced seed-starters only, because there’s not much detail out there about germination and they may require some experimentation. I started mine by surface-sowing in cool conditions (40° to 50°F) for about a month, then moving them to a warm, bright spot, where they germinated after about 2 weeks. I don’t know that the cool period is required, though, as I have seen a recommendation to start the seeds in warm conditions. You could try warm first and then use a chilling period if seedlings don’t appear in 2 or 3 weeks.

Note that this information will not appear on the seed packet you receive.

Nepeta kubanica is a little-known species of catmint with plump spikes of purple-blue flowers over rich green leaves in late spring through early summer on upright, bushy plants that reach 2 to 3 feet tall. Some rebloom is possible if you clip off the spent flowers. The plants might flower the first year, but they will be bushier and more free-flowering in the second year and beyond. Full sun to light shade. Reportedly hardy in Zones 4 to 9, but to be honest, there’s very little information about this species in US gardens, so I haven’t yet been able to verify that. It is definitely hardy in my Zone 6/7 garden.

Collected in early September 2023. At least 15 seeds. Very limited quantity; one packet per person. Shipping to US addresses only.
