Catmint: My cats’ high


My cats’ favorite plant purchase has to be catmint. Rapunzel (along with many a neighborhood stray) spends all Summer rolling through these amazingly resilient perennials. I even snip off a few bits for the indoor cats who treat it like Christmas. I’ve attempted growing catnip now three times, but it’s always eaten to the roots the day after planting. Catmint, on the other hand, is an almost unkillable, freshly-scented perennial that seems to bloom unfettered early Spring until late Fall “cut back”.


If I didn’t have cats (oh, what a tragedy!), I’d love to snip some happy blooms for a country-style bouquet; alas, my kitties would smash the vase to get their “kitty high on”.
