Catmint

Description

Spreading plant with ovate heart shaped grey-green leaves, bearing small blue tubular flowers in whorls in summer.

The chemical compound in the plant that attracts and affects cats is called nepetalactone. When a cat eats catmint, it acts as a sedative, but when smelled, it causes the cat to go crazy.
