Description:

Doesn’t flower as abundantly as the other members in its family. However, this is compensated by its delicious lemon-like scent. Early Australian settlers used to soak the leaves in boiling water to make a herbal tea rich in ascorbic acid.

Height: 200 cm.

Flowers: jul-sep

Type: Tshr

Hardy in: zones 8-9-10-11 (0 Celsius)

Sowing instructions: seeds will usually germinate in 30-180 days, germination may be erratic. Sow seeds about 2mm deep in a peaty seed sowing mix at about 15 Celsius

Planting instructions: Cultivation presents few problems. It adapts well to a variety of soil types. Full sun is preferred as it needs lots of light. If kept indoors, requires a very bright location for survival. Keep uniformly moist as it is touchy about watering. Pruning after flowering improves the vigour of most species and tends to avoid a woody appearance
