Catmint, like every other member of the mint family, is a butterfly magnet. Among their winged admirers are Monarchs, Cabbage Whites, Banded Hairstreaks, Peck’s Skippers, Silver-Spotted Skippers, Zabulon Skippers, Sachems, Appalachian Azures, Spring Azures, and Summer Azures.
Though Catmint attracts Cabbage White butterflies, it deters cabbage moths which damage many edible crops. So Catmint is a fine companion plant for broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, turnips, and radishes. Catmint is also a good companion plant for pumpkins. Because catmint is very aromatic, it is said to repel mice, beetles and aphids.
