Lemon balm is a member of the mint family with an unmistakable lemon scent and flavor. Wonderful to use in teas, fish dishes, fruit salads or desserts where a hint of lemon is desired. Also known as Melissa, it is commonly used in aromatherapy and as a medicinal plant. Traditional medicinal uses include sleep aid, soothing the nerves, calm anxiety and to aid digestion.
Lemon balm is a perennial in zones 4-9. Like most mints, it will become invasive and may be grown in a pot or a pot planted in the soil to prevent it from taking over the area and crowding out other plants. Plant in full sun. Plants grow to a height of 18-24".
