Cat/Dog repellent Coleus cania ?

Seen in a garden catalog a plant(Coleus Canina) is supposed to keep the cats/dogs/rabbits out of the garden.
Any one ever use it or have success with it? Or is this another marketing gimmic?

Nothing, repeat, nothing, will stop a cat fouling your garden if it has a mind to. The coleus Canina is not liked by cats, but they will move three feet or so away from it and foul there instead. You could carpet your garden entirely with it, but who wants that?

All of which IMHO are either unsightly, impractical or simply do not work. Cats either ignore them, dislike them but get over it, or they need replacing every time it rains etc. ( a big downside in UK)
