Melissa officinalis. With a wonderful lemon scent, the leaves make a delicious, calming tea. It has many other medicinal uses and it mixes well with other less tasty herbs. Reseeds vigorously.
Minimum of 200 seeds per packet.

Good germination, robust growth, lovely coloring to the leaves, and that smell. Ugh. It is glorious. I had no experience with lemon balm until I bought these seeds and now I am a fan for life. The scent from the plants is super strong and very lemony. I've found it grows well even in small containers, though it prefers not to be in the direct sun here in the desert-like southern Colorado area.
This is a great plant from some really nice seed. I would definitely buy these seeds from Annie's again.
