Catmint (Nepeta x faassenii)

A tough, misty-blue flowered ground cover. The aroma gives cats a natural high – for the cat that 'has been there, done that'.

Growing Tips

Likes a dry, exposed, sunny position with well drained limey soil. Plant where the cat can easily get to roll around the foliage.

Use

Just like humans, cats have their recreational substances. Cat mint contains nepetalactone which gives cats a pleasant mind altering experience. They get this by rolling in the plant and sniffing the strong aroma.
