Lemon Balm

Quedlinburger Niederliegende

 

Improved Lemon Balm with high essential oil content.

The leaves have a gentle lemon scent, related to mint. During summer, small white flowers full of nectar appear. These attract bees, hence the genus name Melissa (Greek for 'honey bee'). Its flavour comes from citronellal(24%), geranial (16%), linalyl acetate (12%) and caryophyllene (12%).


Sweet lemon-mint scent. Fresh leaves for tea and salads. Easy to grow in moist, well-drained fertile soil. Mulch if winter goes below 0°F. Medicinal: Aerial parts in tea for colds, flu, depression, headache, and indigestion. Sedative. Antiviral. 70 days to harvest when started indoors.

Herb Botanical Name: Melissa officinalis

Herb Description: Strongly lemon scented, Lemon Balm is a popular ingredient of herbal teas and potpourris! Fresh leaves give a nice lemon flavor to salads, soups, sauces and meats. Lemon Balm is also valued for its medicinal properties! Used to treat colds, flu, indigestion, etc. It is a perennial that grows up to 30 inches tall and produces insignificant pale yellow flowers in summer. Should be mulched to protect plant in harsh climates. Attractive to bees, butterflies, and/or birds. May be invasive. Deadhead to prevent self sowing.

Other Common Names: Common balm, Bee Balm, Sweet Balm, Bee's Leaf, Honey Plant

Herb Duration: Perennial

Days to Herb Maturity: 75

Herb Height: 12” to 18”

Herb Seed Saving: Allow seed heads to dry on plants; then remove heads, break them open, and collect seeds. Clean and dry the seeds before storage in cool dry conditions

Very uniform plant with high leaf yields and better winter hardiness than common lemon balm. Mulch if winter temperatures drop below 0°F
