Austrailian Lemon Leaf
Plectranthus 'Mt. Carbine
Lemon leaf is a recent botanical discovery found in Queensland that has not been given a species name yet! Leaves emit a potent lemon-camphor fragrance that add zing when chopped fresh into fruit salads or infused into herbal tea. Produces spires of small baby blue mint-like tubular flowers. Related to Cuban oregano, lemon leaf is a collector’s item that makes a striking container specimen and will surely attract attention.
