Lemon Verbena Plants

Aloysia citriodora

Lemon Verbena was made popular as a perfume centuries ago when introduced by Spanish conquistadors who had found the aromatic herb in South America. Since that time Lemon Verbena has been used in everything from recipes to soaps. Because Lemon Verbena holds its citric fragrance long after being dried, it makes a great addition to potpourris and herb pillows, and can be used in closets and drawers to freshen laundry.

Lemon Verbena is a useful culinary herb, used in teas, salads, dressings and desserts. Blending well with various Mints, Lemon Verbena oil has become increasingly expensive, so Lemongrass makes a cheaper and highly effective alternative.

A wonderful herb plant that will do very well when potted for container gardening or in an indoor herb garden.

Keep the plant in a sunny location, let it dry slightly between watering, pinch back for bushy growth and enjoy it year-round.

Perfect condition May 31, 2017
Reviewer: Magge McCann from Philadelphia, PA United States  
I was a little apprehensive about the condition of the plants when they arrived. I didn't need to worry as they were perfect. My friend and I are now waiting for the plants to grow a bit bigger before we start making our batches of lemon verbena gelato. I will definitely order all my plants from The Growers Exchange - wonderful service and beautiful stock!

Best lemon herb! May 31, 2017
Reviewer: kathleen from Millsboro, DE United States  
As with a previous reviewer - I LOVE this herb.
This makes an excellent lemon tea. I can use it fresh during the growing season and I dry it and have plenty of tea for the year. Last year's 2 plants provided enough to share with friends and family. I actually gave my sisters and brothers a glass infuser tea pot and a package of this dried herb for Christmas last year.
Another use for fresh leaves - line the bottom of a cake pan with fresh leaves and carefully fill with batter. you want the leaves to be able to peel off after baking.  Pound cake it superb for this!  Remove the leaves before serving but add a few fresh ones for presentation. Wonderful lemony cake!

Yummy! February 18, 2011
Reviewer: Herbal Nancy from clayton, OH United States  
This is one of my favorite herbs because it has such a delightful, full-bodied lemon flavor and aroma. I use it to make lemon-flavored vinegar, jelly, and in tuna salad. I add lemon verbena to the water to cook the pasta for tuna pasta salad. It dries beautifully and keeps much of the original fragrance.
