Blue Cloud Catmint is a compact perennial with small green foliage that smells strongly of mint.  Huge amounts of tiny, pale lavender-blue flowers bloom on spikes above the foliage in early summer until fall attract butterflies, pollinators, and hummingbirds.  Prefers sunny areas in well-drained soils.  Tolerates light afternoon shade and drought.

Catmint used to be used as a tea for its medical properties that helped relieve stomach aches and cramping, and insomnia.  Fresh leave poultices have also been used to lessen discoloration from bruises.*
