catnip, Nepeta cataria

When I asked which plant to do today, the cats voted for this. They also want me to say that they don't care if it's native or not. They like it. So I will let them introduce alien plants to the site. At one level, I don't care either. Flowers are beautiful regardless. Of course, at another level, it's important to know which plants are native, which are not, and how they affect each other. To do that, we have to be familiar with them all. Toward that end, have a good look at close up catnip. It grows everywhere except FL, HI, LB, NT, YT, GL, and SPM. Lenawee Co MI, 7/7/13
