Severe cold and freezes will kill this plant. However, lemon verbena can be grown in containers and moved indoors over winter.

Q. Should I Prune My Lemon Verbena

I have a lemon verbena plant that I thought had died due to the bark getting all brown. However, I left the plant in the pot and it’s now started to grow new leaves, both on the brown stems and a new one. Should I remove the brown stems in spite of the fact that they are growing leaves? I don’t want to kill the plant, but I’m not sure the brown stems are the right thing to have. Would a new plant grow from the green stems that are growing at the base?

Yes, you can cut back any dead/brown growth just to where the new growth is beginning to come in.

We do not sell plants. We only offer information in regards to growing them. I would recommend a local nursery in your country, or online nurseries. They will usually ship to just about anywhere in the world, as long as the plants that you are requesting are not blacklisted in your area.

Lemon verbena responds to pruning by producing new leaves at the whorl immediately below the cut rather than along the entire stem. As a result, this shrub can grow leggy. It requires regular pruning throughout the year to increase leaf production. Snip off leggy stems just above a leaf whorl.
