Description for Lemon balm

Melissa officinalis, known as lemon balm, balm, common balm, or balm mint, is a perennial herbaceous plant in the mint family Lamiaceae, native to south-central Europe, North Africa, the Mediterranean region, and Central Asia. Wrinkled, ovate, medium green leaves appear in pairs on square stems. Tiny, two-lipped, white flowers appear in the leaf axils throughout summer.

Common name Flower colours Bloom time Height Difficulty
Lemon balm White to pale yellow June to August 1.50 to 2 feet Easy to grow

Planting and care

Sow lemon balm seed one fourth inch deep. Thin successful seedlings to 8 inches apart and later to 18 inches apart. Space rows 18 to 24 inches apart. Lemon balm spreads by underground roots. To keep lemon balm from spreading, set it in the garden in a container that will keep the roots in place. Remove unwanted plants before they become established.

Caring for Lemon balm

  • Cut back plants in fall leaving just 2 inches of stem.
  • The plant may freeze back to the ground in winter but will re-grow from underground roots and renew itself in spring.
