Aloysia triphylla
Lemon Verbena
Try this herb for its clean and wonderfully crisp lemon fragrance! It lends that same lemony flavor when used in Asian cuisine, teas, potpourri and as a topiary. Plant early in spring in full sun. Does especially well in coastal areas. Keep some branches in the kitchen to ward off fruit flies! (Herb)
