Nepeta cataria 'Citriodora' (Catnep Lemon)Herb 1L Pot

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 4 feet 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.If cut back mid season a new flush of growth and flowers will result.

Herb Usage

Lemon Catnep is most recognised for its effect on cats, and it has been documented the scent of bruised leaves of Catnep 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 Catnep were used for medicinal purposes, but now it is seen as a decorative plant, used in pot pourri.
