WHAT IS SILVERVINE?
Silvervine (Actinidia polygama) is a climbing plant native to China and Japan's mountains. It's also known as "Matatabi" or "Japanese catnip" in Japan. It produces fruit that resembles kiwi, but it is not the fruit that gives the plant its name. Silvervine gets its name from the silver-white leaves and flowers that bloom on the fast-growing vine.
HOW DOES SILVERVINE AFFECT CATS?
Silvervine is a particularly appealing cat treat because of this attraction. Silvervine has a sweet, pungent odor after it has been dried and ground into a light brown powder. Silvervine, like catnip, has an immediate effect on many cats. They frequently roll on the floor, rub their chins and faces on nearby surfaces, drool, and lick when exposed to it. Although silvervine is not widely known in the Western world, it is one of Asia's most popular cat treats. In fact, silvervine is so popular in Japan and China that a cat's reaction to it is known as the "Matatabi Dance."
