I were reading about the lemon verbena plant and the wonderful scent that it got. So, I would like to buy some seeds. Where can I find those?
Lemon verbena does not produce seeds. It is propagated only cuttings, which means that you need to purchase a plant if you want to experience the remarkable scent and flavour of this plant.
Lemon verbena is a tender perennial shrub from Chile. It prefers full sun, but can manage to get by with partial sun. For the summer months it is best to grow it outdoors, bringing it in before the fall frosts. Indoors, give it your brightest window, and even there you may want to supplement the light with grow lights.
Is it worth the bother and expense? You bet! Lemon verbena has one of the clearest and most intense lemon scents in nature. It is terrific in teas and with baked fish and for many other uses around the kitchen and home.
