The main one I've heard of is mint, especially wintergreen because it's so fragrent. Others plants that are supposed to help repel rodents include amaryllis, daffodils, hyacinth and narcissus.

Some people say catnip works. I've heard of that for mosquitoes but not rats. Maybe because it attracts cats, which scare the rats away?
