Catmint (Nepeta cataria) is a perennial plant found growing naturally in the wilds of Europe and North America. It grows to a height of around 60 – 90 cm, producing branched stems that become very leafy and covered in a mealy down. The leaves themselves are heart shaped and have a serrated, toothed edge.
The flowers of the catmint bloom from July to September, and grow in dense whorls. The flowers themselves are small and trumpet like in nature, and tend to be a white/pale pink color, dotted with red spots.
