Hello lovely ! This herbaceous perennial is a member of the family (Lamiaceae), which includes lavender, rosemary, thyme, bee balm and giant hyssop. In addition to having aromatic leaves, these plants share other common traits, such as two-lipped flowers, square stems and opposite leaves. Many people confuse catmint with catnip (Nepeta cataria). While the two are closely related, catnip is more aromatic than catmint but has less ornamental value.
Give catmint plenty of space as it tends to grow wider than tall.
Although it prefers full sun, catmint will thrive with some afternoon shade.
Keep new plants or transplants watered until they can fend for themselves. After that, established plantings are drought and heat tolerant.🌞 The flowering tops of the catnip plant are used in a variety of ways to treat a number of different health conditions. From stomach issues, pest repellent, stress relief and even arthritis relief, catmint has been used as an herbal remedy throughout history.✨
