CATNIP (Nepeta Cataria) is a staple in my garden and has been grown in America since at least the 1700s. Bushy plants spread 2-3' when mature. Very drought-tolerant once plants are established. You may too if you give it a protected corner. Keep it pinched back to prevent it going to seed and you will have bushy healthy plants all during the growing season. Useful in the vegetable garden as well as it deters flea beetles, so inter-plant with your eggplant! Perennial in zones 3-4, but I have had success maintaining this plant year to year in zone 7 with some refresher seeding. You will get one organic starter in a nursery pot with organic soil.

Please note: If for any reason you believe your plant arrives in distressed condition, or damaged, please take a picture and send to me immediately. I will either send you another plant or refund, but I can do nothing if you do not notify me of the plant's condition with photo on arrival. Also, some of the pictures may be of mature or blooming plants. You are getting what is represented in the description, not a mature blooming plant.
MEDICINAL PROPERTIES: High in Vitamin C. The leaves have a euphoric effect for cats and a mild sedative effect for their humans. My cats are gracious enough to share their large patch of this wonderful herb with me from time to time. Brew in tea, fresh or dried.
