A misleadingly named plant. Here is the origin of the name from San Marcos Growers:  
The name 'Walker's Low' is misleading as it is not a low growing catmint; the name refers to the name of the garden where the plant was originally found, possibly in Ireland.

Great drought tolerant plant. I have them by daylillies and bearded iris. Makes for a great color combination. Very easy plant; needs minimal attention.

i grow this in the mountains in crestline -every year i have to be sure i have some in pots as my cats love to roll in it  
and sleep on it -so i just plant plenty and make sure i have some in pots to carry over to the next year. it does survive the winter under the snow and comes back every spring

Thanks for the information.  
I wonder if this is the cat thyme I planted years ago. This is why common names are unless.

It’s beautiful at 6k ft and my cats love to roll around in the one I bring inside during winter. Makes lovely additions to flower arrangements. Does it winter over in the ground as well or does it need to be brought in in a pot?
