Plant catnip for your favorite feline. This member of the mint family evokes an enthusiastic reaction from most cats. They go wild for it, rolling around and purring and rubbing against the plant. However, it has no scent for humans. A hardy plant that looks similar to mint, it is very easy to grow. In summer, catnip will produce clusters of white flowers accented with purple dots. The leaves are used for teas, but catnip is mostly known for the dramatic effect its scent has on cats.

Some Bonnie Plants varieties may not be available at your local stores, as we select and sell varieties best suited to the growing conditions in each region.

Catnip is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredibly Enticing to cats!: I grew this Bonnie plant for the first time last year and loved it so much that I bought more this year. I have a couple of raised garden beds, but I am far from having a green thumb so when I say it's easy to grow you can take that to the bank.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My cats love this stuff. One of my old roommates cats rolled in it and knocked the entire planter off the porch! Am having trouble finding it this year and really want to grab it before it's gone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from not tough enough: These catnips take a year or two before they flourish. It's stems are easily damaged by cats rolling on the plant. IF the plant survives its first year, it will a wider base and be able to tolerate a little more kitty love. If you want durable catmint for landscaping, get Walker's Low instead. If you want catnip as an herb suitable for drying, this is the stuff.
