This shrub has highly aromatic leaves which have a strong lemon scent when crushed. The leaves can be use in many recipes including herbal tea and a delicious lemon sponge cake! Otherwise just enjoy the fragrance as you brush past the leaves in the garden. Keep trimmed to encourage more fresh foliage foliage. May be late to break into growth in spring. This plant is best grown in a pot so you can move it into a greenhouse or conservatory over winter as it is not very hardy but it may be ok in the milder and dryer parts of the UK.
