Lemon Balm, Mandarina

80% of 100

Perennial hardy from USDA zones 4-9. This lemon balm is especially lovely, with leaves infused with the intoxicating scent of mandarin orange! The crawling habit makes this an enthralling container plant as it “spills” from hanging baskets and pots. It also makes a delightful, scented ground cover. A delicious tea plant to add citrusy notes to your blends. Small white blooms appear in summer. Height 6-12 inches, 20-24 inches wide.
