Mmmmm...Lemon Verbena

Please excuse my wild front yard. We havent even gone into the backyard, the "taming" section of the blog! This is my Lemon Verbena (Aloysia triphylla) that I have had for several years. This wonderfully scented, tender plant is native to Peru and Chile where it can reach 15 feet. Here in my yard it has sat and sat and sat....never getting much above 2 feet. But this year, despite a very cold winter, it has come into its own!! Its at least 6' tall! I am hopeful that from now on out, it will make it through the winters. Oh sure, I expect Jack Frost to wrap it in his icy cloak of black, but it should (fingers crossed, knock on wood) come back.
