Nepeta x faassenii 'Six Hills Giant'

Catmint, Nepeta mussinii

No cat-lover should be without some form of Nepeta in the garden. Cats love to smell, eat, and flop down on top of the Catnip and Catmint varieties, so protect plants with wire cages or a teepee of stakes. Dried leaves can be used as feline treats or as tea. Members of the Mint family, Nepetas are hardy spreaders that make good ground covers. All have gray green foliage and small flowers of white, purple, or yellow. Plants prefer full sun and can tolerate infrequent watering. Find them in the herb or perennial section of your nursery.
