Catmint (Nepeta racemosa) Herb Seed

Catmint or Nepeta racemosa is a hardy perennial which has square stems and pointed leaves. The leaves have a minty aroma, hence the name, and small blue flowers are produced in spikes which grow to 3 inches long. It flowers from spring to September to a spread of 50 cm and a height of up to 25 cm. Catmint prefers well drained soil, preferably in a sunny position, and dislikes wet winters. Catmint is scented and attractive to bees, and will be an attractive addition to the herb garden.

Herb Usage

Catmint is most recognised for its effect on cats, and it has been documented the scent of bruised leaves of Catmint can cause cats to roll in it, paw it, lick it and/or heavily salivate. Some have even been known to exhibit aggressive behaviour in its presence. As a herb, the leaves of Catmint were used for medicinal purposes, but now it is seen as a decorative plant, used in pot pourri. If cut back in mid season a new flush of growth and flowers will result.
