HISTORY
Lore Nepeta is commonly called catmint, though not all species and varieties produce leaves whose scent is highly attractive and mood-altering to cats. Nepeta cataria is the true catnip that is loved by house cats; the organic compound nepetalactone, which acts as a cat attractant, was first isolated from this species. Not all cats react to this compound; 30% or more of the feline population is completely insensitive to it. Some catmints that may be less likely to be visited by cats include certain varieties of Nepeta x faassennii, Nepeta racemosa, Nepeta siberica, and Nepeta subsessilis. Many plants in the genus Nepeta are deterrents for certain insects, including aphids and squash bugs.
