I love catmint! It has a place in the back of a couple of my flower beds and looks good all year, even when it's not blooming. You are right....that IS a beautiful coneflower! Height isn't everything, ha.


Pretty catmint and coneflower :)


Catmint definitely has a cottage garden look to me (which I love) and I'm glad to hear it will look good all year. Connie, your comment about the coneflower made me laugh because I'm slightly less than 5 feet tall so I would agree - in the garden, and in life, height isn't everything! :)
