Catmint, Nepeta faassenii - Zones 3-10

Catmint is a beautiful ground cover with light, grayish-green leaves. Throughout the summer it displays an abundance of soft blue flowers. If the plant is cut back when it is finished flowering, it will produce new blooms. Since catmint is a member of the mint family, it also attracts bees, which help pollinate garden vegetables.

Brendhan I hope this helps you out.
Have a great day

What pretty flowers!  Great job taking the pics for us!

I have a patch of chocolate mint here that just started flowering.  Of course the girls are all over it.  I love mint, all it needs is some water and it reseeds and regrows every spring.  It's so handy for making drinks and cooking too.

MrILoveTheAnts.  What incredibly beautiful and breathtaking pictures.  I love to get up and close and personal with flower picture taking too.  I will be posting some eventually.  Keep those pictures coming on!!!  It will brighten up any old day.

Annette.  I think that bees love all sunflower.  I grow several species and they are always full of bees.  Sunflowers are majestic and one of the most beautiful flowers I can think of.  Have a wonderful day, beautiful life.  Cindi

My bees have been given directions and they are on there way over to your buffet! Nice pics. The bees were all over my lavender this year too! Love the gladiola pic. So soft and well lit. Great composition!

MrILoveTheAnts, your yellow bulb plant-sunflower is a dahlia of some sort.  Gorgeous pictures!


It seems I have two of those Dahlia plants but they look nothing alike. Thank you for the identification.

More Photos!

Some sort of mud wasp on Raspberries flowers. Not exactly a flower picture but the green went with the color scheme.

It's just an Olympus SP 510UZ, 7.1 MP, 10x zoom, 2.5 LCD (whatever that is). Also it has a Super Macro feature for close up shots. It's good for honey bee shots but anything smaller starts to get fuzzy.
