Lemon balm is an herbaceous perennial in the mint family. Its foliage has a distinctive lemony fragrance when bruised. The leaves are light green, crinkled, slightly hairy, strongly toothed on the margins, more or less egg shaped. As is typical of herbaceous mints, lemon balm leaves are arranged in opposing pairs on square stems. The flowers are not at all showy and the plant is generally grown for its lemon scented leaves. Balm grows freely in any soil and can be propagated by seeds, cuttings or division of roots in spring or autumn. The roots may be divided into small pieces, with three or four buds to each, and planted 2 feet apart in ordinary garden soil.
