Common questions about growing Nepeta

1. Is Nepeta the same as catnip?

Yes, catnip is the common name for Nepeta cataria, a plant in the mint family. It is native to Europe, Asia, and North Africa, and it has been introduced to many other parts of the world.

Catnip is known for its effect on cats, which contain a compound called nepetalactone that is irresistible to about 60% of cats. When cats smell or taste catnip, they experience a euphoric reaction that lasts for a few minutes. Cats will often rub against catnip plants, lick them, roll around in them, and even play with them.

2. Which Nepeta is best?

The best Nepeta for you will depend on your individual needs and preferences. However, some of the most popular and highly-rated Nepeta varieties include:

If you are looking for a Nepeta variety that is attractive to cats, Nepeta cataria is the best choice. However, if you are looking for a Nepeta variety that is beautiful and easy to care for, any of the other varieties listed above would be a good choice.

3. Where is the best place to plant Nepeta?

The best place to plant Nepeta depends on the variety you choose and your individual growing conditions. However, in general, Nepeta prefers full sun to partial shade and well-drained soil. It is also important to choose a planting location with good air circulation to prevent fungal diseases.

6. Is Nepeta poisonous to dogs?

No, Nepeta is not poisonous to dogs. In fact, some dogs enjoy nibbling on the leaves of Nepeta plants. However, if a dog eats a large amount of Nepeta, it may experience some mild stomach upset, such as vomiting or diarrhoea.
