Catmint/nepeta is easy to grow. Hardy, aromatic and long flowering. Easy to propagate too...pull pieces off and root them.
a good alternative to lavendar I think.
Yes it will smother a pot.
I grow this on my front wall...as part of a number of trailing and wall plants......and it will root as it spreads. Not really invasive though. Don't know about attracting cats but lizards enjoy asking in it down here
