Catnip is a Eurasian species which is thoroughly naturalized in all kinds of disturbed places and weedy areas including dumps, parking lots, around buildings, fields and thickets, roadsides and railroads, shores and flower beds. It arrived in North America in the 1830’s.
We found many Catnip plants this morning during our walk in the Beechwood / Don Valley area.
It has quite an effect on some cats as this You Tube video shows.
Some birds and the moon:
Here and yonder, high and low,
Goldenrod and sunflowers glow. – Robert Kelley Weeks (1840–1876)
