I think it's further ahead in its blooming because it's in a pot. Walker's Low in the ground is just leafing out, so far.

That's funny, Cinda; I have that same identical shirt. Rolling on the floor laughing Mine's too small (too?).

Hilarious!
Maybe it is something about Indiana Rolling my eyes.

It is nice to know that nepetas will grow (overwinter) in a pot

Do we have a thread for Perennials that will live in a pot?
Might be a good topic?

I think the rule of thumb is something that is hardy one or two zones colder should winter in a pot in your area.
e.g. A zone 4 plant is safe to winter in a pot in zone 6, and a zone 5 plant might be OK.
