Perennial in zones 8 – 11, grow as annual in colder zones or bring inside for winter. Aloysia citrodora. Can get to 4′-6′ high in warmer climates. When it comes to lemon-scented herbs, lemon verbena has the most intense concentration of oils per square inch of plant material. Devoid of bitterness, this plant is beloved as an additive to drinks, baked goods, or anywhere you might use lemon zest. Easy to grow in regular garden soil, set your plants out at the same time you plant tomatoes, coleus, and other warm-weather lovers. A site with full sun, rich soil, and regular moisture will result in quick growth for the harvest. Cut leaves whenever they are large enough to harvest. Makes an excellent tea.
