Details

Catnip is a perennial herb from the mint family Labiatae. It has a square, hairy stalk with typically geen/grey coloured heart shaped leaves that have scalloped edges. Flowers grow in spikes, reaching 1/2 inch in length. It is best known for its ability to get cats high. Nepeta cataria (catnip or true catnip): White flowers, grows up to 3 feet. This is the variety most cats enjoy. Catnip is not harmful to your cat. They won't overdose on it. Most cats know when they've had enough and will refuse any further offers. Catnip is an easy plant to care for. It likes northern hemisphere weather, cool winters and mild summers. It is frost-proof too!
