Aloysia citrodora

Category White Nursery
Lemon verbena is a deciduous sub-shrub grown for its aromatic foliage, which has a scent that is similar to sherbet lemons. It also has panicles of delicate pale pink/white flowers.
Chop a small handful of fresh leaves then steep and strain to make a refreshing tea that can be enjoyed hot or iced.

It’s not fully hardy, so will require winter protection in the form of a thick mulch to protect the roots. Alternatively, grow Aloysia citrodora in a container that can be moved to a frost-free location over winter.
