Seed Savers Exchange Herb, Catnip
(Nepeta cataria) Native to Europe and Asia; grown in America since the colonial era. Euphoric effect for cats. Makes a tasty herbal tea for humans. Bushy plants spread 2-3' when mature. Very drought tolerant once plants are established. Perennial in zones 3-9.
You can sow seeds indoors or directly into the soil in mild areas starting around mid-spring.
This is a "cut-and-come-again" plant so you can harvest leaves as they mature. Keep the leaves well watered and cool.
