The common variety of catnip with dense whorls of small white or pinkish flowers, blooming from summer to fall. Hardy perennial to 3 feet; with downy, heart-shaped 3" leaves. The stems of these fragrant plants have the squarish shape typical of the mint family.

Grow catnip plants in full sun to partial shade. They are drought-tolerant, making them good candidates for sunny, dry areas where many other flowers would struggle. Like so many herbs, this perennial thrives in poor soil that is well drained. Catnip plants like a slightly alkaline soil.

Known to be used medicinally as a digestive or sleeping aid, the leaves make a fine tea and the leaves and shoots can be used as ingredients in sauces and soups.

Well-known cat attractant that, in cats susceptible to the plant, pleasantly stimulates cats' pheromonic receptors, typically resulting in temporary euphoria. Good bee plant. Excellent as a companion plant, deterring aphids and several types of beetles.

Germination advice:

Germinates irregularly in 1 - 4 weeks and up. Early spring, sow outdoors at least 4 weeks before average last frost. Fall, sow outdoors as late as 2 months before first fall frost. If sown indoors, 6 weeks before average last spring frost for transplanting outdoors.
