Catmint Plants

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.

Caring for Catmint

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.

Zones: 3 - 9

Size: 18"H x 12"S

Light: Full Sun

Bloom: Lavender, Late Spring - Summer

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.

Catmint April 18, 2017
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Weeki Wachee, FL United States  
The plants arrived packed wonderfully, and thankfully your company does such a great job since the delivery person didn't understand what the arrow symbol on the box meant! : ) It was in a bad position for less than a hour. Opened the box and let sit on the front porch until the weekend. None of the plants needed water, and all are doing really great!
Planted the catmint among the rose bushes and it is doing really good! This is my second time ordering from growers exchange and both experiences have been wonderful - very vital, healthy plants!

Catmint November 2, 2015
Reviewer: Beverly Meade from Temple, TX United States  
Plants arrived healthy. They have established well and are growing. The seers have nibbled but not devoured. That's about all I can hope for in the drought conditions we have. The growth is keeping pace with the consumption.

Oh my gosh, my cat went crazy on the plants. I thought I wouldn't get them planted before she obliterated them! Climbed in the box and rolled all over the plants....

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.
