Sometimes known as catswort or catmint, catnip can be used to season food or brew tea for stomach aches.

Why We Love It

In addition to appealing to four-footed friends, catnip is an excellent choice for drought gardens.


Catnip care is a lot like cat care-- give it direct sunlight and avoid getting it too wet (water about every two weeks when it's mature).

The Cat's Meow

Cats of all sizes-- from leopards to lynxes-- enjoy catnip's active ingredient (nepetalactone).

Freeze Out

You can keep your catnip in an airtight container in the freezer, but its potency will dwindle with time.
