80-90 day. In the mint family, catnip is excellent grown for a tea, but is also loved by cats. It is a larger plant, growing up to 4 feet tall. It can be used as a companion plant and is thought to repel many harmful insects including flea beetles and squash bugs. Like all mints, it can become invasive. We have some growing in the hayfield hundreds of feet away from the original planting.
Minimum of 300 seeds per packet.

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. ;)
