Lemon Verbena Herb (Aloysia triphylla)
The best lemon scented herb! Perhaps not much to look at but Lemon Verbena leaves give off an explosion of lemon scent when touched. This half-hardy deciduous perennial needs to be brought undercover for Winter, but is well worth the effort. Plant in a sheltered, sunny position in well drained soil. Trim back in early Spring to promote bushy new growth. Use fresh Lemon Verbena leaves to flavour oils, vinegars, jellies and use leaves fresh or dry for making lemon tea.
