This herb's aromatic leaves can have a dramatic effect on cats! While not all cats are affected by Catnip, most will respond by eating and rolling in the plant. The leaves can be dried and stuffed into cat toys. Catnip is especially nice when planted near porches, patios or pathways where fragrant, minty foliage can be enjoyed. Tea brewed from the leaves is thought to remedy insomnia and hyperactivity. Fresh leaves may added to salads.
