Lemon Balm has a wonderful lemony scent and produces white flowers in the summer that are full of nectar. It is often used in potpourris and the oil is used in aromatherapy products. Lemon Balm is used as a flavoring for ice creams and herbal teas and is the main ingredient in lemon balm pesto. Pair with spearmint for a great flavor combination. The crushed leaves can be rubbed on skin for a mosquito repellent.

Homeowner Growing Tips: Remove faded flowers to promote continued blooming. Grow in well-drained soil. Established plants can tolerate some drought.
