Lemon Verbena

Lemon VerbenaNo. 23

Did you know there are around 2502 different species of the verbena plant, but only one lemon verbena? Prized for its multifarious culinary uses, teas, marinades, puddings and even as potpourri, it was introduced into England in the late 18th century by an Oxford professor, and has been a popular presence in many an ornamental greenhouse ever since.
