Nepeta cataria var. 'Citriodora'

Catnip, Lemon

Lemon scented catnip is a wonderful version of the common catnip that felines adore. The lemon form makes a delicious tea. Because it is less attractive to cat guests it can be used more reliably as a landscape plant in areas where felines roam free. It has soft grayish foliage and white stalks of flowers. It seems to have a more mannerly form of growth than common catnip.

Foliage is scalloped, gray-green and highly aromatic when crushed or bruised. densely clustered, two-lipped lavender-blue flowers bloom from May to September.
