Where to plant catmint?

Your cat is a catnip fanatic. You just have to take out a bottle of the stuff, and he’s at your feet purring and begging. Sure, you could buy your catnip (remember — the fresher, the better).

But your cat is an Adventure Cat, and this is a call for adventure: You can go forage for your own catnip.

Catnip is a member of the mint family, and like many other mints, it grows and spreads like a weed. That means you can likely pick some without worry — chances are, no one will miss it. Even better, catnip plants will continue to grow back if you leave the roots intact, so clip the plants just above the ground and you’ll be able to keep coming back to your own little patch of wild catnip.

A few disclaimers for responsible adventuring

  • Only forage in areas you know have not been treated with herbicides or pesticides.
  • Don’t pick anything on protected land or private property even if it is just a weed. Or simply ask for permission first.
  • Don’t let your cat eat anything until you’re absolutely sure you’ve found the right plant.

With that out of the way, let’s head out!

Where to find wild catnip

Catnip grows all year long and is not picky about the kind of soil it grows in. In fact, you’ll often find it thriving in poor soil conditions. Catnip loves sandy or gravelly soil and full sunlight, so look for it in places such as railroad tracks, around open meadows and fields, along fences and old houses, near streams, and in other areas you’d expect to find weeds.

What to look for

There are several species of catnip, but they all share characteristics and differ mainly in the color of the flowers. Catnip is grayish-green and can grow up to three feet tall. Look for jagged, heart-shaped leaves and thick stems that are both covered in fuzzy hairs.

The best time to search for wild catnip is between July and October when the flowers are in bloom. Catnip flowers bloom in large clusters at the tops of the plants and look like little tubular mouths. Flowers are usually a bright white color, but some can be fully or partially violet. (Cats love the pure white kind the best.)

Your cat will probably react to the catnip before you do — wild catnip tends to be more potent than the kind you can buy from farms. Before you let your cat go to town on the plants, you can do one final thing to make sure you’ve got the right herb. Smell it! Pinch off a leaf and give it a sniff. If it smells minty, you’ve found catnip.

You’ve found catnip. Now what?

Catnip has a more potent effect the fresher it is — that’s why catnip-filled toys run out of oomph in the open air so quickly. You and your cat can set up camp and enjoy the plants right there in the fields. If you plan to take some home with you, remember to cut the stem instead of pulling out the roots.

Once you’re home, you can enjoy your spoils as much as your cat will. Just add some leaves to your salad or tea for a refreshing minty twist. (Yes, it’s safe!)

You can also dry out the catnip for later use by hanging it upside down in a dry, shaded place for a week or two.

Happy adventuring!

Learn About Catnip

Bacterial Leaf Spot: First signs are small translucent spots with a broad yellowish edge that slowly enlarge and become angular or irregularly circular with a reddish center. It thrives in cooler temperatures. The disease may also affect and disfigure flower heads.Burpee Recommends: Remove infected plants. Rotate crops with plants in a different family. Avoid overhead watering. Do not work around plants when they are wet.

Cercospora Leaf Blight: Small flecks which develop a yellowish halo appear on the leaves and turn brown and coalesce. They cause the leaves to wither and die. Burpee Recommends: Remove infected plants and destroy all plant debris. Rotate crops.

Root Rots: A number of pathogens cause root rots of seedlings as well as mature roots. Burpee Recommends: Pull up and discard infected plants. Make sure your soil has excellent drainage. Contact your Cooperative Extension Service for recommendations.

Septoria Leaf Spot: This diseaseis most severe during rainy seasons in closely planted gardens. Circular spots with gray centers and dark margins appear on the lower older leaves. Fungi spores are produced and darken the center of the spots. There is a progressive loss of foliage and fruits suffer from sunscald. Burpee Recommends: Remove and destroy infected plant debris. Don’t handle or brush against plants when they are wet. Remove weeds growing nearby.

Virus (Various causes): The most characteristic sign of virus is tight and dark green mottling of the leaves. Young leaves may be bunched. Young plants may have a yellowish tone and become stunted. Burpee Recommends: Plant resistant varieties. This disease is readily spread by handling. Destroy diseased plants and the plants on either side. Never smoke in the garden as Tobacco Mosaic Virus can be transmitted from a smoker’s unwashed hands while handling plants.

Common Pest and Cultural Problems

Aphids: Greenish, red, black or peach colored sucking insects can spread disease as they feed on the undersides of leaves. They leave a sticky residue on foliage that attracts ants. Burpee Recommends: Introduce or attract natural predators into your garden such as lady beetles and wasps who feed on aphids. You can also wash them off with a strong spray, or use an insecticidal soap.

Flea Beetles: These small hopping beetles feed on plant foliage and spread diseases. Burpee Recommends: Use floating row covers to prevent damage to young foliage.

Spider Mites: These tiny spider-like pests are about the size of a grain of pepper. They may be red, black, brown or yellow. They suck on the plant juices removing chlorophyll and injecting toxins which cause white dots on the foliage. There is often webbing visible on the plant. They cause the foliage to turn yellow and become dry and stippled. They multiply quickly and thrive in dry conditions. Burpee Recommends: Spider mites may be controlled with a forceful spray every other day. Try hot pepper wax or insecticidal soap. Check with your Cooperative Extension Service for miticide recommendations.

Thrips: Thrips are tiny needle-thin insects that are black or straw colored. They suck the juices of plants and attack flower petals, leaves and stems. The plant will have a stippling, discolored flecking or silvering of the leaf surface. Thrips can spread many diseases from plant to plant. Burpee Recommends: Many thrips may be repelled by sheets of aluminum foil spread between rows of plants. Remove weeds from the bed and remove debris from the bed after frost. Check with your Cooperative Extension Service for pest controls.

Whitefly: These are small white flying insects that often rise up in a cloud when plants are disturbed or brushed against. Burpee Recommends: They are difficult to control without chemicals. Try hot pepper wax or insecticidal soap. Check with your Cooperative Extension Service for pesticide recommendations.

Do I Have Catmint Or Catnip: Are Catnip And Catmint The Same Plant

Cat lovers who also love to garden are likely to include cat-favorite plants in their beds, but it can get a little confusing. Especially tricky is catnip vs. catmint. All cat owners know their furry friends love the former, but what about catmint? Is it the same thing or a different plant cats enjoy? While the two plants are similar, there are important distinctions.

Are Catnip and Catmint the Same?

It can be easy to mistake these two plants as simply different names for the same thing, but they are, in fact, different plants. Both are part of the mint family and both belong to the Nepeta genus – catnip is Nepeta cataria and catmint is Nepeta mussinii. Here are some other differences and similarities between the two plants:

Catnip has a weedier appearance, while catmint is often used as a pretty, flowering perennial in beds.
Catmint flowers more continuously than catnip. Catnip flowers are typically white. Catmint flowers are lavender.
Some people harvest catmint leaves to use as a culinary herb similar to mint.
Both plants attract bees and butterflies in the garden.
Both plants are fairly easy to grow.

Do Cats Want Catmint or Catnip?

For gardeners with cats, the main difference between catmint and catnip is that only the latter will stimulate cats and make them go crazy. Catnip leaves contain a compound called nepetalactone. This is what cats love and what induces them to eat the leaves that give them a euphoric high. Nepetalactone also repels insects, so it’s not bad to have around the house.

Some people report that their cats show some interest in catmint. Those that do are more likely to roll around in the leaves than to eat them as they do with catnip. If you are looking for a plant to grow purely for the enjoyment of your cats, go with catnip, but if you want a prettier perennial with ongoing blooms, catmint is the better choice.

Catmint — A “Must-Have” Perennial

  • By Pat Chadwick
  • /
  • April 2015 – Vol 1. No. 4

Catmint ‘Walker’s Low’

If you’re looking for a perennial that is long blooming, heat tolerant, resistant to pests and diseases, and easy to grow, then allow me to recommend catmint (or Nepeta) to you. After years of experimenting with drought-tolerant and deer-resistant plantings, I still include this top performer on my list of “must have” plants. It plays a prominent role in my ornamental garden and provides interest in all four seasons. It has attractive gray-green foliage that emerges in neat, tidy mounds in April. By May, the plant fairly explodes with a profuse haze of soft lavender-blue flowers. After the initial flush of blossoms, the plant continues to show lots of color well into late summer or early fall. Colorful calyces that are similar in color to the blossoms enhance the floral display even after the blossoms are gone. Left standing over the winter months, the foliage fades to a pleasing soft silvery gray color.

Emerging Catmint Foliage

This herbaceous perennial is a member of the mint 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.

Catmint plays well with others. If you love the classic combination of lavender and roses but find lavender too finicky to grow in this area, catmint is a good substitute. Just like lavender, catmint can be used to cover the bare “limbs” of rose bushes. It’s cool-toned foliage and flowers offer a pleasing counterpoint to the vivid tones of the roses.

Catmint blends well with most other colors but looks particularly appealing when paired with colors in the red-blue color spectrum. In my own garden, it looks stunning planted with irises. In particular, it pairs well with the medium lavender-blue iris ‘Crater Lake’ and with the blue-violet hues of iris ‘Swingtown.’ The mounded shape contrasts nicely with the vertical silhouettes and deeper lavender shades of Allium cultivars ‘Gladiator,’ ‘Giganteum,’ or ‘Purple Sensation.’ As spring merges into summer, catmint harmonizes well with the cascading burgundy foliage of ‘Garnet’ Japanese Maple or with the purple foliage of Heuchera ‘Plum Pudding.’ ‘Purple Ruffles’ basil is yet another terrific companion for catmint, plus it’s edible! Yellow-flowering plants such as Hemerocallis ‘Happy Returns,’ Achillea ‘Coronation Gold,’ or Coreopsis ‘Early Sunrise’ also make a pleasing combination with catmint.

The most popular catmint cultivars grown commercially in this country belong to the hybrid Nepeta x faassenii. The plants are named for J. H. Faassen, a Dutch nurseryman, in whose nursery this hybrid first appeared. The flowers of N. x Faassenii are sterile and do not need to be deadheaded to prevent self-sowing.

Whereas members of the N. X faassenii family are sterile, other related species, such as the following, are fertile and may need to be deadheaded to prevent reseeding:

  • Siberian catmint (N. sibirica) – Tall (two to three feet) upright plant with large green leaves and rich blue flowers.
  • Japanese catmint (N. subsessilis) – Unlike the other varieties of catmint, this one prefers moist soil. Although it will take full sun, it likes partial shade.
  • Yellow catmint (N. govaniana) – Native to the Himalayas, this hard-to-find variety has yellow flowers which bloom later in the summer.
  • Veined Nepeta (N. nervosa) – Native to India, this species grows one to two feet tall and is characterized by strong veins on three- to four-inch long leaves.
  • Greek catmint (N. parnassica) – This catmint, which is more commonly found in European gardens than here in this country, grows to an impressive four to six feet tall and wide.

In a comparative study of catmints conducted by the Chicago Botanic Garden between 1999 and 2006, 36 catmints were evaluated with the goal of identifying outstanding specimens in terms of their ornamental traits, disease and pest resistance, cultural adaptability, and winter hardiness (the botanical garden is located in zone 5b). Of 22 catmints that were highly rated, the following four top performers received five-star excellent ratings based on their heavy flower production over a protracted bloom period:

  • ‘Joanna Reed’ – Lavender-blue flowers on 24-inch tall by 48-inch wide plants. It is named for the late Pennsylvania gardener who discovered it.
  • ‘Six Hills Giant’ – Lavender-blue flowers on 30-inch tall by 48-inch wide plants.
  • ‘Select Blue’ – Lavender flowers on 14-inch tall by 30-inch wide plants.
  • ‘Walker’s Low’ – Lavender-blue flowers on 30-inch tall by 36-inch wide plants. As an aside, the name comes from a garden in Ireland and not because it is short. In fact, it is nearly as tall as ‘Six Hills Giant.’ In 2007, the Perennial Plant Association selected ‘Walker’s Low’ as their Perennial of the Year.

If you’re compelled to look for catmint in the local garden centers, don’t limit yourself to just these four selections. Many other excellent cultivars are available, such as ‘Dropmore,’ ‘Blue Wonder,’ and ‘Junior Walker,’ which, at 16 inches tall, is a shorter version of ‘Walker’s Low.’

HOW TO CARE FOR CATMINT

  • 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.
  • Don’t bother to fertilize it. Catmint prefers well-drained soil that is not overly fertile. In fact, soil that is too rich may cause the plant to flop over or split in the middle. Should that happen, shear the plant back to tidy it up. Some compost in fall or spring will provide sufficient nutrients to keep the plant happy.
  • Shear the plants back by a third or more after their first flush of bloom is past. This will neaten the plants, contain their size, and encourage a second flush of blooms later in the summer. Even without being sheared, the plant will repeat bloom and continue to look attractive over the hot summer months.
  • Leave spent foliage in place over winter to help protect the crown. Wait until early spring to cut it back.
  • To keep catmint vigorous, divide it every three to four years in either spring or early fall. Keep it well watered the first growing season until the plants become established.
  • Some cultivars of catmint can grow quite large. If you want to contain the overall size of the plant, pinch it back in spring after it is a few inches tall to promote a bushier growth habit.

HOW TO PROPAGATE CATMINT

  • To propagate catmint, slice off a vertical section of an established clump in spring. Make sure the division has several young shoots and a substantial root system. Keep well watered until the plant becomes established.
  • Catmint may also be propagated through cuttings. Take three-inch long cuttings of healthy shoots in the spring before flower buds form. Insert the cuttings into a moist medium such as sand or a peat-perlite mix. They should root within two or three weeks.

PESTS, POLLINATORS, AND OTHER CONSIDERATIONS

  • With regard to pests and diseases, catmint is generally untroubled by either. Leaf spot is the only problem that occasionally occurs. This fungal disease is not considered serious enough to warrant control practices.
  • As I have learned from experience, some cats are attracted to catmint. If this is a concern for you, place chicken wire over newly planted or transplanted catmint to prevent kitty from eating or rolling around in it.
  • This plant is a veritable bee and butterfly magnet. As a bonus, hummingbirds love it as well.
  • If four-footed critters other than cats are a problem in your garden, you’ll love this plant. Its minty, aromatic foliage repels rabbits, voles, and deer. Now THIS is a plant that earns its keep!

Cats love catnip, but did you know humans can use it too? We’ll share catnip identification, uses and benefits, plus tips on safe and fun use for kitty.

What is catnip?

Catnip (Nepeta cataria) is also known as catnep, catmint, catrup, catswort. It’s a perennial herb that’s a member of the mint family. Many people know it from dried packets or cat toys at the pet store, but it’s easy to grow in your garden.

Where It Grows Wild

Catnip grows in wide variety of soils, in sun or shade, and in dry conditions. Like many weeds, it pops up in fields, gardens, along roadsides, and in public parks.

Although native to Asia and likely brought over from Europe, catnip is now naturalized in much of the world. It’s found throughout the United States and Canada. (map source)

Plant Identification – Leaves, Stems and Flowers

Catnip leaves grow opposite on the stalk, with toothed edges and an arrowhead shape. Leaves are 1-3 inches long and covered with white, downy hairs. When you crush the leaves, they release a strong, minty smell.

The plant grows from 1 to 3 feet tall, with square stems (a mint family trait).

Nepeta cataria flowers are white with a slight hint of purple, and are tubular in shape. They grow in clusters near the top of the plant. If you don’t want it to spread too quickly, make sure to deadhead before the flowers set seed.

Butterfly visiting blossoms of catnip and radishes gone to seed

Bees and butterflies love the flowers, and seed eating songbirds like finches enjoy the seed heads.

In the video below you can get a better look at one of our catnip plants, with some help in identification from our cats, Ronnie and Miss Kitty.

Uses and Benefits

Although most commonly grown for cats’ enjoyment, catnip has a long history of medicinal use. The tea is soothing, cooling and relaxing. The leaves are safe to eat, but strong in flavor. Large amounts may induce vomiting.

To make catnip tea, place about a tablespoon of fresh or dried leaves in a cup and cover with hot water. Steep (covered is best) for 10-20 minutes for medicinal use.

Edible & Medicinal Wild Plants of Minnesota & Wisconsin notes the following medicinal uses of catnip:

  • Calms tension headaches
  • Relieves indigestion induced by nervousness
  • Sleep inducer
  • Sleep extender
  • Fever reducer
  • Decongestant
  • Eases menstrual cramps
  • Promotes menstrual flow
  • Eases Tremors/convulsions
  • Infant colic and diarrhea
  • Relieves bull hives
  • Calms restless, agitated kids
  • Soothes teething pain and nightmares

Do not use Nepeta cataria during pregnancy. For infant use, all particles must be carefully screened out of the tea with a coffee filter or similar filter. Always consult your health provider if you are on any medications or for specific medical conditions.

Catmint as a Pest Repellent

Catnip acts an insect repellent, due primarily to the nepetalactone content of the essential oil. Historically, it’s also been planted around building to deter rats and mice. See “Catnip: Its Raison d’Etre” for more information on Nepeta cataria pest control use.

Lab tests have shown nepetalactone to be stronger than DEET as a mosquito repellent. To repel fleas from carpets or the fur of animals, try a strong infusion of catnip tea.

When I’m out in the garden and the mosquitoes are moving in, I grab a handful of catnip and rub it all over myself. It helps significantly. If I’m a little slow and get bit up before I get it on, I use plantain to soothe the bites.

Since herbivores don’t eat catmint, I use this to my advantage to protect my seedlings from wild bunnies.

What does catnip do to dogs?

Catnip relaxes dogs, similar to the way it relaxes humans.

Why do cats like catnip?

The same nepetalactone that helps deter pests triggers a reaction in the cat’s olfactory bulb that then affects the rest of the body. The response is similar to a pheromone trigger, and affects cats of all sizes, from house cats to lions and tigers. (If you have large wild cats in the area, you may want to be cautious with planting catnip in the garden.)

Do cats really get high on catnip?

Different cats react in different ways to catnip. Some get excited – rubbing, chewing, kicking and acting a little crazy. Others become lethargic. (More of a “Whoa… dude” type of reaction.) It’s a little like kitty marijuana. The short video clip below shows our kitties, Zoro and Big Fluffy, with fresh nip and a nip toy.

Cats react for about 10 minutes, and then become immune for about half an hour. About 70-80 percent of cats are affected by catnip, and kittens don’t react until they become sexually mature at around 6 months. (Don’t waste money on catnip treats for kittens.)

Is catnip poisonous to cats?

The ASPCA will tell you that catnip is toxic to cats, and other sites will tell you to wash out your cat’s mouth if they eat it.

On behalf of my cats, and many other cats, I’d like to say these folks are nuts.

Yes, it can cause vomiting and diarrhea in large doses – but most cats will not overdose.

We have large amounts of catnip all over our yard and garden. Our cats and visiting barn cats from next door visit and enjoy the plants every year. We’ve easily had over 20 cats through the garden in the last 14 years, and never once have I seen a cat get sick from catnip. Happy, sleepy, excited, and/or a little crazy – yes – but not sick, unless your cat has no self-control.

To be extra safe, test a small amount of nip and see how your cat reacts. Don’t give them a huge tub of dried catnip the first time around, or slip it into their food.

Easy Homemade Catnip Toy

As a special treat, we make simple homemade catnip toys for the kitties to have inside. We used to give them loose catnip, fresh or dried, but it made big mess.

Now, we take old socks and stuff them with fresh or dried nip. Ta-da! The nip socksicle! Zoro loves his special toy.
