Lemon Verbena – Introducing the Queen of Lemon Scented Herbs

Introducing the Queen of Lemon Scented Herbs

I consider Lemon Verbena ( Aloysia tripylla ) to be one of nature’s greatest gifts. The clean fresh lemon scented leaves make a fantastic cup of herbal tea on its own or blended with ginger or peppermint. A vigorous grower in the heat of summer , this tender perennial must be protected from below freezing temperatures. Click on the photo to see how big it can grow in Malaysia !
