My, what a diverse collection of plant material bahzit. Did you mention
where you garden? One assumes a temperate zone , but one can never tell
when the correspondent fails to reveal his identity and physical location.
Or perhaps you have a virtual garden that's independent of space, time, and
the vagaries of Mother Nature.

Do tell, I know that I, for one, am all ears.

P.S. - By the way, which species of the Nepeta genus are you referencing?
Why ever would it not come up? All the members of the genus with which I am
familiar are reliably hardy. But then I am no expert. I will look forward
to hearing more.
