This herb produces a strong lemon scent with just a hint of mint. Perfect for teas, salads (both green and fruit), seafood cuisine, or a fragrant addition to any arrangement of cut flowers. While it’s known for its mounding habit, it can reach up to 24” to 36” inches in height, and unlike most herbs, lemon balm prefers a touch of shade.
Lemon Balm is not only a natural pest repellent, but in the medicinal world it is also known for its antiviral qualities. It is a calming herb and also used for digestive issues. It's a sun lover, can grow 4 foot tall, and likes to really spread out (about 60 inches).
