Anyone knows where to find fresh lemon verbena (Hierba Luisa

Hi there I am looking for fresh Hierba luisa. It's a wonerful plant that makes a wonderful herbal infusion and also added to a Moroccan tea makes it taste 10 times better. I have searched the net and the translation into Lemon Verbena.

I did look for at Oerlikon Market a few times but couldn't see it. If anyone here can help I would appreciate it.

Los latinos ya sabeis de que hablo!!

Thanks in advance.

Amongst others Garten.ch sells Zitronenverbene plants.
It is easy to keep in a pot on your balcony/garden.

That is the one. Or at least the pics look like it could be the one. I will try the Garten.ch to get one. And would recommend anyone to get one too. It has a beautiful lemon smell and a few leaves with hot water make a lovely before bed drink.
