6903- Lemon Verbena. Aloysia citrodora

Perennial (hardy in zones 8-10)

An absolute must for those who love lemon scented aromatic herbs! Will produce an abundance of zesty leaves all summer long if planted in full sun and well drained soil. So fragrant, you wont be able to resist brushing the leaves every time you walk past it, surpassing both lemon balm and lemongrass in intensity! This South American native produces sprays of purple or white flowers in early spring or early summer. Leaves can be used in soups, sauces, fish or chicken dishes, as a flavouring to oil, vinegar and desserts. Can be dried to brew an uplifting tea. Try freezing in ice cubes to use in summer drinks! The oils have antimicrobial, anti inflammatory and antioxidant properties and have been shown to have a calming effect on both the body and the mind. Height 2-3 metres.

Safe Seed Pledge

Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative. We pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants. The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds.
