A favorite of some of our fluffy friends, catnip can actually grow to be a quite large, bush-like perennial. A member of the mint family, you can see a resemblance by looking at the leaves. It’s really quite full and attractive if you’re looking for a space-filler, and produces tiny white or violet flowers when in bloom. Interestingly, not all cats actually enjoy catnip. My baby Chewy loves the stuff! My other baby kitty, Lily, on the other hand completely ignores the stuff. Cut down at the end of the growing season and enjoy full growth the next.
