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.

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.
