Description Briscoe's Tips Use Them!

Nepeta mussinii

Herb gardening for the whole family - pets included! The soft, crinkled, gray-green leaves on this compact, mounding plant make Catmint great for containers and the perennial garden. When the stems of Catmint are broken, they release an aroma into the air that will delight your cat, similarly to catnip. This is a great medicinal plant that can be used in teas as a mild sedative and digestive aid for humans, too.

Spent flowers should be sheared off to promote blooming - cut back by 2/3 in July to promote reblooming in August to end of Summer. Nepeta thrives in hot, sunny and dry locations. It is one of the best plants to edge or under plant a rose bed. Cut back to the ground at the end of winter.

Uses: Catmint is a very easy plant to grow, with few pests or problems. When the stems of Catmint are broken, they release an aroma that your cat will go crazy for, illiciting the same response that Catnip gets from most cats.

Tips: In environments unsuitable for lavender plants, Catmint can easily be substituted.Try container planting this hardy perennial, as it is prone to spreading.

Love it! June 5, 2015
Reviewer: Mommastinkyface from Temple, GA United States  
Such a pretty plant! I have planted them in several different areas and they all seem to be growing happily! I even have some flowers popping up already! They were shipped to me with great care and in excellent condition! By far the healthiest plants I have received in the mail.

Reviewer: Della from danville, IN United States  
My Cats love Catmint! They don't react to Catnip but they love Catmint! I have bought some from Growers Exchange and taken advantage of their buy more save more discounts. That way I could have Catmint inside and outside the house! The Cats love it!
