Product description

Aloysia triphylla or lemon verbena grows up to three metres in height. It gets the name lemon verbena due to the fact that the leaves give off a lemon scent when crushed. The leaves are long with a pointed tip, growing to around 8cm in length. They are a bright green colour and have a slightly rough texture. The pretty small flowers grow in sprays and are a pale purple or white colour, growing on purple stems. This plant is native to Argentina and Bolivia. It was introduced to Europe in the 17th Century by the Spanish and Portugese. These leaves are great for cooking with, adding a lemon flavour to many dishes; its especially great with fish.
