Catmint herb plants are considered as one of the sturdiest perennials that you can grow in your garden. This plant can thrive well during hot and dry weather and the silvery foliage and blue-colored flowers look their best most of the season.
It is best to deadhead right after
the initial bloom in order to encourage production of more flowers. The
soil where you will plant catmint must be average and drains well. The
tall varieties might require gentle staking and it sometimes seeds
freely. This plant is considered as a favorite of cats since they
typically roll around in these plants in delight.
The most common catmints are those that have purple-blue flowers that bloom productively in early summer. They are available in different heights that range from a foot tall up to 3-4 feet tall, making them ideal in any garden setting, including rock gardens, flower borders and for edging.
A classic combination is to plant them with hybrid tea roses that will serve as a cover of the rose bushes while at the same time compliment the shade of the rose blossoms with the soft blue flowers. Other varieties of catmint produce white and pale pink flowers while the uncommon varieties produce yellow-colored flowers.

There are annual herbs which have to be replaced each year, biennials which form leaves in the first growing season and then flowers and then seed in the second season, after which they die.
Biennials are best planted in late spring in the garden. Perennials are able to withstand colder temperatures and return annually. Culinary herbs are strong flavored herbs added to dishes in small quantities to add aroma and taste. These include basil, thyme, sage, chives and savory.Why not see some more information on different types of herbal plants.
