Has any one tried this plant and does it work ?
Coleus canina
Coleus canina - Scardey Cat, Cataway, cat repellant
Cats and rabbits and dogs hate the smell of this plant.

Attractive half-hardy plant with grey-green foliage which gives off a strong aroma especially when touched or in the sun.
The aroma is disliked by most cats and dogs.

In summer it produces heads of pale blue flowers which also give off a strong aroma.
If planted in a container this can be moved around the garden, thus protecting different areas of the garden from unwanted attention from cats.
The pot can then be over-wintered in a frost free area.
Full sun or light shade. Any reasonable soil.
