I have a beautiful flower bed around my pool, but there is one area that always seems to smell like a cat is peeing there. I was wondering if there are any particular plants that give off a similar type odor to cat's urine?

I've always thought that juniper bushes smell like cat pee. Do you have any of these nearby?

Yes! Sorry I can not name the plant but I can describe it. Two banks in my town plant a low evergreen bush around their property. It definitely smells like cat urine. Maybe some kind of Juniper?

My mom had a plant she grew near her front door that used to smell real bad when wet. Cat urine. She had a name for it but it is Spanish, Rhutha. She would use it in witch hazel as a liniment.

It's boxwood. A lot of Boxwood's smell exactly like cat urine. I got rid of mine.
