Grow them as borders or centre plants where there are no direct exposure to people. Inhaling the furs is very dangerous, and this happens often when people take the flowers close and try to smell this.
While the Cat's Tail is very beautiful and attractive you can grow it in a space where there is not much breeze and they grow well even in dark garden corners brightening up any space with their attractive vibrant blooms!
