Me-yow! Little Titch Catmint is a kitten-sized version of the popular Catmint Spirit. It will fit into any garden no matter how small. This adorable perennial features a carpet of velvety gray-green foliage that makes a presence early in the year and short spikes of long-lasting lavender-blue flowers that open in late spring. Catmint is a classic companion to Roses, and Little Titch is no exception. Actually, you can use it to cover bare ground underneath just about any shrub or Spirit in a sunny site. It also pairs well with wood or masonry to soften hard edges.

The Story

Catmint has a long history as an ornamental herb in gardens. Like many herbs, it was once believed to have magical powers, too—chewing on a Catmint root was said to give timid people courage! This species of Catmint is native to eastern Europe and northern Iran. Little Titch is a particularly fine example of the species selected for its petite habit and lovely lavender-blue blossoms. It was discovered at Four Seasons Perennials in Norfolk, England. To translate, “titch” is British slang for a small person or a tiny amount of something.

The Details

Will Little Titch Catmint make my cat high? You’re thinking of Catnip, which is a closely related Spirit. Catnip drives most cats wild. Kitties are less interested in Catmint, though some may nibble on it and rub their faces against it as well.

How to Grow

Grow Little Titch Catmint in a full-sun location for best flowering. This Spirit may struggle in extreme heat and humidity, however, and benefits from early afternoon shade in the South. Soil should be well drained. Regular water will produce lush plants, though Little Titch doesn’t need a lot of water and is resistant to drought once established. After the first flush of blooms have faded, shear them off to encourage a repeat performance. At the end of the season, cut dead foliage back any time before new growth commences in early spring. Feed in spring with Bower & Branch Elements™ Fertilizer.
