Plants That Are Safe for Cats

Q: What type of outdoor plants are safe for cats?

Hardiness Zone: 10a

D.W. from Central California

A: D.W.,

There are many outdoor plants safe for cats. It would probably be easier to look at list of plants known to be toxic to cats. The Cat Fanciers' Association has a fairly extensive list of poisonous plants on their website,


The Animal Poison Control Center pages of the ASPCA's website offers two lists-one for plants that are safe and one for plants that are toxic to companion pets. Click on the link entitled, Make Your Pet's Home Poison Safe,' for links to lists of toxic and non-toxic plants.

We planted a tiny plant, catnip! (perhaps also called catmint?) Looks similar to a herbal mint, also gets lilac colored flowers before seeding, pleasant smell when crushed. That tiny plant grew & grew into an enormous tall 'bush' in one summer! The cats love it! Can also cut it & bring it in to dry & save. I read it does lose potency over time when being stored.
