A friend recently returned to the UK after living in France for years queried why I was growing Lemon Verbena (Lippia Citriodora) when 'all of Europe prefers Vervain! It is bigger, better and lemonier!' My trusty herb book implies that one equals the other. However I have now shown my friend Aloysia Triphylla which she states is completely wrong as it is for drying and making tea. Further research via the web has flagged up Verbena Officinalis but I cannot track down this plant. Can anyone help with this please?
