Catmint (Nepeta Faassenii)

A garden treat for your cat

Cats adore this close relative of catnip. It forms a mound of sage green leaves topped by sprays of tiny lavender-blue flowers. After a big flush of flowers in May and June, catmint reblooms in late summer.

Plant some just for your cat to enjoy. (Start with a fairly large plant; kitties can love small ones to death.)
