The Plant of the Day is Nepeta grandiflora. The common name is Catnip. It likes full sun and its flowers are fragrant. The foliage is aromatic giving cats temporary euphoria, thus the common name Catnip. It's native to Europe, Asia, and Africa. It is drought-tolerant. It attracts butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds.
