Catnip and Catmint belong to the Nepeta family. Both herbs are attractive and display violet colored blooms above attractive green leaves. These herbs tend to promote playful behavior in cats, hence the name Catnip and Catmint. The plants typically grow to a height of 24 to 30 inches tall and don't require much maintenance once they are established.
Their attractive flowers and scent will lure in all sorts of beneficial insects to the garden, such as butterflies, bumblebees, honeybees and more. They make a great companion plant with many other butterfly attracting herbs and flowers and go great as a border plant as well!
