Lemon Verbena (Aloysia citrodora) Herb Plant in 1 ltr Pot 


Lemon verbena is also known as Cedron and Lemon Beebrush, and this fabulous herb plant is an excellent addition to the herb garden.

Aloysia triphylla (Lemon verbena) is a deciduous perennial shrub native to South America, but is now found in North America and Europe. It has attractive leaves and should always be included in herb gardens designed for scent, pot pourri and culinary uses. Its flowers are fairly unassuming, and appear in summer as small white or pale mauve blooms. The plant grows to a height of 2 metres and gives out a powerful lemony scent which intensifies when the leaves are rubbed or crushed. 

Preferring light, well-drained soil and a sunny, sheltered position, lemon verbena will respond well to being cut back hard, as this keeps the herb plants from becoming straggly.

Herb Usage

As a herb plant lemon verbena isn't as widely used in the kitchen or as part of home remedies as it should be. Only 100 years ago, it was a common ornamental plant found in European gardens, but today it is rarely planted. In folklore lemon verbena is linked with purification and love and was said to help attract a suitor. Made as a tea, lemon verbena is said to prevent a person from dreaming. The leaves can be used in sweet and savoury dishes, homemade pot pourris, scented sachets and bath teas.
