Ok germination rate but some of the hardiest plants ever. I could not kill these if I tried. Grew several catnip plants indoors over winter and they survived many forgotten waterings- bouncing back even after laying completely flat from parchedness (my watering skills have improved since then, lol). My cats also went crazy for it, fresh or dried, and it smelled really nice to me as well. Just overall a really bright and vibrant plant to have around- just watch your fingers when you try to give some to your kitties. My thumb will never be the same. ;)
