Lemon Catnep or Nepeta cataria 'Citriodora' are mostly known for the behavioral effects they have on cats, not only on domestic cats but also big cats. Catnep is used as a recreational substance for pet cats'enjoyment, and catnip and laced-catnip products designed for use with domesticated cats are available to consumers. Not all cats are affected by catnip.
Looking surprisingly like nettles, this substantial herb will reach 4foot and will show white flowers on the end of each stem. Lemon catnep has a lovely lemon scent to the leaves. An excellent addition to the border or the herb garden.
