Description: Perennial. Cats love catnip! They love to nip the leaves. They love to roll in it. And you will too. A member of the Mint family, Catnip is a strong smelling, aromatic herb. It has clusters of white or purplish-blue flowers atop toothy, heart shaped leaves. The leaves have a lemon-mint flavor and scent. It grows two to three feet. It is easy to grow, and doesn't need alot of attention. Catnip's use as a medicinal plant stems from its ability to treat digestive disorders and aid in fever reduction. Catnip is usually taken as an herbal tea by adding the dried herb to boiling water and allowing to steep.

Care: Allow plenty of space for your catnip to grow.

Harvesting: Harvest leaves as the flowers begin to bloom. Cut off the leaves, stems and flowers. They can be used fresh, dried, or frozen. Spread leaves out to dry in a cool and ventilated area
