Help please - I've forgotten what this plant is! It's in flower now. The height is about 3' and you can see a flower and its leaves in the photo. I hope someone will recognise it...

Thanks, all.




Is it a type of lamium,Spritz ? I don't suppose it would be that easy lol.

No - sorry. Good try - I wish it was...;-)

I hoped someone would recognise it to save me going all through my plant list!

Well, it looks very much like Nepeta subsessilis, there is a blue one with a fancy name and a pink one ditto.

I'll check it out, Owdboggy. Thanks. :-)

YESSS!!!! Thank you again - it is! Strangely enough, I had a conversation with Wagger last year on these lines, because I couldn't remember its name then. :-((

Ha ha it's in the middle of my wide border! I'd never find the label, Sbg! I 'do' feel silly to keep forgetting, though.

NEPETA SUBSESSILIS......repeat three times daily. LOL.
