Cedronella (Lemon Shrub)

Cedronella or Lemon Shrub are strongly scented plants with a perennial rootstock and annual to biannual flowering branches. The have trifoliate, light green, edible leaves which have a very pleasant lemon-like fragrance and may be used for salads. Branches are topped with clusters of pale rose to white flowers. For any well drained, rocky soil in full sun to partial shade. Keep drier and always sunny in winter. Very large and tall plants can be cut back easily in early spring. Plants will make readily new offsets from the ground.
Sow seeds rather flat in any humus rich, yet well drained soil at some 15° to a maximum of some 22°C (in certain Canary plants, higher temperatures will slow down or even inhibit germination!). Keep pots in full sun and soil always slightly moist. Germinate occurs over a period of several months.
