What blooms with catmint? Looking for perennials only. Have a small bed that looks dull right now, except for the catmint. Hard to find things that bloom BEFORE the iris and peonies. Thanks for any suggestions....

violets or viola?

Resurrection lilies are blooming right now, would probably look great with catmint. HTH! :)

RE: Color me stupid-er!

I just read the date on your post, maybe dianthus (pinks)?

Yes. Dianthus, especially red ones, look great with catmint. Also the perennial geraniums.

Geranium sanguineum, meadow sage, chives, creeping phlox, and catmint bloom at the same time in my garden and look great together.
