Teaser: A delightful lemon fragrance issues from leaves that are brushed.
Description:

A delightful lemon fragrance issues from leaves that are brushed and the leaves make a wonderful tea. Plants grow 30 cm (1') tall in containers and to 60 cm (2') in height when planted in the garden. We suggest growing this herb in partial shade on droughty soils. Lemon Balm, which is a member of the mint family, may self-sow and establish adventive stands. The nectar filled white flowers are a major attractant for bees. Lemon Balm is a perennial reliably hardy to Zone 5 and to Zone 4 with winter protection.
