King of the Catnip FamilyEasy Grow. Big Show.
Would you like a gorgeous flowering plant without the fuss? Your perfect choice is the Lemon Pledge Nepeta (Nepeta citriodora). This perennial produces gorgeous flowers for over three months each year. Draw your neighbor's envy from late spring into fall. The soft grey leaves contrast perfectly with tufts of lavender blue flowers. The lemon scent livens up any garden. You won't be able to resist rubbing the leaves for its pleasant citrus fragrance. No wonder it's king of the catnip family.
The Good Neighbor
Need a plant to compliment your gorgeous array of KnockOut Roses? The Lemon Pledge is a perfect companion, giving your roses its deserved centerpiece appeal. The low growing plant will enhance any walkway. In fact, any shrub or herb will jump out at the eye with the addition.
This is a must-have plant for starter gardens. The Lemon Pledge is hardy. It can stand serious drought conditions, and it continues to thrive during extreme heat and humidity. Soil amending for the plant is minimal. The perennial can withstand the poorest of soils, as long as its well-drained. You can create a dense row of this variety thanks to only 1-2 ft. of spacing. Plants will flower within three months, starting in early summer. The Pledge is adaptable in most environments (specifically Zones 4-8), including the coastal regions.
A Better Mulch
No more spending countless dollars on ground mulch. The Lemon Pledge is the ultimate ground cover, aka living mulch. This plant style provides dense soil cover, keeps dirt from drying out, and prevents weed growth. Even erosion is eliminated. Think of the difference between your luscious lavender-colored display with the basic brown mulch that surrounds every department store.
Natural Pest Control
Your battle with garden nuisances are over. Sprinkle cut leaves in the veggie garden to deter ants and onion maggots. Plus, the plant repels deer, rats and mice.
The blooms will grow heavy after the first year with simple maintenance. Make sure to water new plants regularly until established. Cut them back by a third after the first bloom in early summer, ensuring you will have massive blooms from mid-late summer well into autumn. The cut flowers are a must for the inside. Imagine a centerpiece in each room, filled with gorgeous blue petals that fill the home with a subtle lemon scent.
