USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

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.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

Plant Information

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.
