Lemon Verbena

Excellent plant to control guardia. Has a pathogen bactericidal action.Make a strong infusion by putting several 6-8" growing tips in teapot. Add boiling warer, cover, let stand for at least 5-7 minutes, then drink. Can add honey to taste. | Chris Kilgour - Cooks Gap, NSW 05-Apr-2008

Great for herbal tea, very tasty, comparible and easier to grow and make than Lemon Grass. Mainteneace free, prune often to bush plant, using the tips to put in your food and tea will suffice for pruning.

Great in food as well for a lemony edge, A bit like Lemon Tyme.

This lemon verbana, the leaves are too coarse and rough surface, what do you do with them ? I had mine pulled up from the garden bed. But it smell nice though.

Well most people make tea. Pick off half a dozen leaves or 2-3 tips pour boiling water over laeve for 5 mins. Is good. I use it in my cooking though as my daughter gets rash from citrus at the moment so its my citrus flavour. If you dice it fine and put it in most dishes you wont notice the texture. its just a little rough to eat raw.

Summer 2012: grown from a cutting pinched from my sister's new plant. Has a pretty form. Seems very similar to oregano in the way it is growing at the moment.
