Walker's Low has crinkled, aromatic, silver-green foliage. Although its name implies that it's a dwarf catmint, it grows to 36 inches in height and spreads from 30 to 36 inches. It is named for a garden, rather than for its habit.

Walker's Low is hardy in zones 3 to 8, and thrives in average, well-draining garden soil. Once established, the plant is drought- and salt-tolerant, and will have few pests or diseases.

This plant should be cultivated in a sunny site, but will tolerate some shade in hot climates. It will bloom almost continuously throughout the season, from May until frost, if pruned back by two-thirds when initial flowers fade. Walker's Low will be easy to propagate by division or cuttings for spreading elsewhere in the landscape. Division is the easiest method. Simply use a shovel to cut through the plant, taking some roots along with the tops and replant in a sunny spot.
