 Catmint 'Kit Kat'(Nepeta x faassenii 'Kit Kat') Herb in 9 cm Pot

Catmint 'Kit Kat' or Nepeta x faassenii 'Kit Kat'is a hardy perennial which has square stems and pointed leaves. The leaves have a minty aroma, hence the name, and small purple flowers are produced in spikes which grow to 3 inches long. Unlike other Catmints this variety is much lower growing making it great as an edging plant or towards the middle of the border. It will flowers from Spring to September if you cut back once maybe even twice in a season it will flower again reaching a spread of 30 cm and a height of up to 30 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. Cut back hard in autumn for vigorous new growth in spring. Divide large clumps in spring or autumn.

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.
