'Cat's Pajamas' Catmint (Nepeta) • 'Serendipity' Ornamental Onion (Allium) • PRAIRIE WINDS® Ornamental Grass
Use this simple sun loving combo of plants to get season long interest with minimal deer disturbance. This recipe matches fine foliage textures of varying colors and successive bloom times. ‘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. ‘Serendipity’ Allium will come next in midsummer, with globes of rosy purple flowers that will turn into decorative seedheads by fall. The PRAIRIE WINDS® Ornamental Grass will take center stage to close the year with strong fall and winter presence.
