Grow Heirloom Catmint - Plant Catmint Seeds

Clusters of lavender-blue flowers atop gray-green foliage makes for a beautiful addition to home gardens. Not only is it ornamental, but history tells us that the Roman town of Nepeti, possibly the origin of its genus name,used it to make herbal teas and insect repellents. It shares many characteristics as Catnip but is less attractive to felines.
