Catnip is a perennial mint that grows up to three feet tall. The leaves are grayish-green, heart-shaped, and downy. The flowers are whitish-pink with purple spots. Herbalists also know catnip by its Latin name Nepeta cataria. The name Nepeta is thought to have been derived from the Roman town Nepeti, where catnip was once cultivated.
