All catnips, or catmints are members of the mint family. From late spring to mid-summer, you'll be treated with lush purple spikes of flowers, and your cat will be treated to all the pleasures of catnip. Kit Cat Nepeta is a more compact variety reaching heights of 16” unlike other catmint varieties. Kit Kat does best planted in average and well drained soils and planted in full sun to part shade. In warmer zones such as the south Kit Kat does best with afternoon shade as it’s not as heat tolerant as other catmint varieties.

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
