I have been searching for the identity of this plant and can't seem so get it right. I've had it for quite awhile and always thought it was bee balm, I'm pretty sure that's not correct!

Looks like Catmint, Nepeta
This one is a possibility, it's pretty popular: Catmint (Nepeta x faassenii 'Walker's Low')

It does look very like Nepeta 'Walker's Low', which is blooming here now too.

I agree with catmint. I have 'Walker's Low', 'Six Hills Giant' and numerous self sown plants which may have come from the seed-grown Nepetas I purchased. They vary quite a bit in form and flower color, some similar to WL. Unless @MollyMay knows she planted a 'Walker's Low' I wouldn't be inclined to assign it to that clonally propagated cultivar.


Here's a self sown low-growing one cascading over my garden step wall. Growing from a crack between the blocks. But probably rooted behind the wall too.

I want to thank everyone for your help. I did plant this and I usually keep all the tags of plants in a tin box. There are a few plants I have gotten from neighbors or possibly end of season that were not marked.
It's a beautiful plant, and I'm glad I now know what it is!
