Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
The lemony leaves of lemonbalm are fragrant and wonderful. It is grown exclusively as an herb and its pungent green leaves are used for tea and potpourri.
Lemonbalm is a hardy perennial herb in the mint family. The plants are clump-forming and offer inconspicuous white or pale pink flowers in late spring to summer. The flowers are pollinated by bees and set lots of seed. This herb heartily self-sows, so watch out. It can quickly become unwelcome if you don't cut the seedheads off.
Adaptable and easy to grow, lemonbalm grows best in full to partial fun and fertile well-drained soil. It is easier to keep it at bay if grown in containers or troughs and takes well to regular shearing.
