Verbena, Lemon is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good quality last year, grew, but dead this year. I bought this last spring . It came around fast with beautiful smell and foliage. This year it isn't coming up. It is dead . I am going to see if I can get another or credit. I will give a review again if it isn't satisfactory for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Iced Lemon Tea I received 3 plants, and followed the instructions. I planted them in a large pot I live in Minnesota, where the cold winter is not forgiving, so I had to wait until the end of May to take the outside. The plants grew fast and strong. In a medium pot I boil the water. When it reaches a boil, I remove from heat, and add 30 Verbena, 20 Lemon Balm, 10 Sage. Cover and let stand for 7 minutes, stirring once or twice. Strain the liquid into an ice tea dispenser, and leave in the refrigerator over night.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome taste and fragrance I've harvested my Lemon Verbena several times this season. I use it on fish, in my bottled water, iced tea and pink lemonade. I usually have several sprigs in a small vase in the kitchen, at the ready! Lemon Verbena speaks summer to me. Can't imagine a summer without it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from lemon verbena The lemon verbena plants I ordered were large and vigorous plants. You can also take cuttings to make more plants. I used them to make tea which was sooo delicious. The more I cut the more the plant bushed out so I had tea all summer. I would definitely recommend this plant.
