Lemon verbena foliage has a clean, fresh, lemon scent, it performs well in garden bed or containers. It’s the best! Its medium green foliage brightens up the mixed herb bed. It adds a wonderful lemon flavor to any dish, but is especially good as a beverage tea with peppermint. Soak some leaves in vodka and sugar for a fresh lemon verbena liquor. Excellent in potpourri. Sprigs can be harvested anytime with sharp hand pruners.
