Nepeta

Nepeta fieldNepeta (nep-et-ah), catnip; Lamiaceae Family. Nepetas are one of the easiest perennials to grow, as long as they are not given too much care and attention. They thrive on neglect. Too much water and/or fertilizer will engender thin floppy growth and a disappointing display. However place them in well drained, even poor soil, in full sun and these plants will reward with a magnificent display of flowers and fragrance.

Plant in average, well-drained soil. Shearing the plant back in the springtime will promote more compact growth. In addition, cutting plants back by half after their first bloom tends to stimulate a second bloom cycle.

Drought tolerant, once established in well drained, average soil. Attracts butterflies, bees, hummingbirds, but not deer or rabbits. Growth rate is considered moderate in northern zones and rapid for the south. One of the easiest perennials to grow as long as they are not given too much care and attention. They thrive on neglect. Plants are sterile, so propagate in the spring by division, or cuttings in summer.

This is part of the mint family, so its foliage is fragrant, which deters deer and rabbits. It may, however, attract cats (they might rub against it and smell it).

10 times more effective than DEET, a common bug repellent chemical.

Attributes: flower borders, containers, cut flowers and foliage, drought tolerant, fragrant mass plantings and easy to grow. Attracts butterflies, bees, hummingbirds. Deer and rabbit resistant.
