Q.Is This A Catnip Plant And Is It Safe For Cats To Ingest?
I bought this as a butterfly plant at home depot, but no bees or butterflies ever went near it. However I did find cats passing thru just went nuts over it and would lie on it, flatten it and cuddle with it like crazy. I recently divided the plant. Wnen fully grown it gets very large and maintains a perfect tight dome shape. Just brought in a few leaves for one of my cats and he went nuts over it. I did not let him eat it. Is this plant safe for cats to ingest? or play in? Thank you.
