The Lemon Verbena Plant is a full and leafy plant that can be grown in herb gardens or containers. It features long, narrow foliage that comes to a point.

Lemon Verbena Plant Care
Lemon Verbena grows as a perennial in USDA zones 7 through 9. This plant can be grown outside of those zones after there is no longer a threat of frost. Plant this perennial in full sun, in rich, well-drained soil. Space plants 12 to 18 inches apart. Straggly-looking plants can be cut back by one-third to rejuvenate growth.
Growing Lemon Verbena Plant
The Lemon Verbena Plant will reach 3 to 4 feet tall and 12 to 15 inches wide at maturity. Remove leaves using sharp, clean shears. Leaves can be picked as soon as they are large enough to use.
Plant Lemon Verbena in a container for flexible placement options and year-round use. Select a 12- to 14-inch wide container with drainage. Place the container on a deck or patio during the spring and summer, and bring the plant inside when the weather turns cold.
Watering Lemon Verbena Plant
Water the Lemon Verbena Plant when the top couple inches of soil are dry. Container-grown plants will need water more often.
Feeding Lemon Verbena Plant
Routine feedings will encourage more growth and keep the plant full and robust. Fertilize Lemon Verbena every couple of weeks using balanced, water-soluble plant food.
