The strong lemon flavor and fragrance of the rich green, oval shaped leaves makes this herb a favorite for flavoring ice cream, teas and drinks.  Great with fish.  Easy to grow.  Known as a mosquito repellent as well as a medicinal herb.  Prefers cooler temps and part shade, but will grow in full sun.  Perennial.  Melissa officinalis
