Melissa officinalis ‘Lime’
Lime Balm is a perennial herb that shares many characteristics with its cousins lemon balm and mint. It is as easy to grow with a distinct lime fragrance. When planted in the garden it enjoys a moist soil with dappled light. Like Mint, Lime Balm can grow quite quickly, spreading to its garden borders, so be sure to plant it in a contained garden bed or pot should this be an issue. Also like its cousins, Lime Balm will die down or back completely in the colder months, but rest assured it will return every year as lush and leafy as ever!
Lime Balm can be used in many culinary dishes as well as dried for tea or pot pourri! And if none of these tickle your fancy, this plant is absolutely gorgeous along garden edges in Cottage, Potted or Culinary gardens, adding that gorgeous lime fragrance when you brush past.
