    Lime Balm sounds wonderful. Would I need to keep it well away from my Lemon Balm? I’m in zone 8, North East TX with acidic soil. Thanks!

      Hi Judy,
      I also have these growing in the same garden and have not seen a cross occur, apparently they are sufficiently different to not hybridize.

      Does this have the same medicinal benefits as lemon balm?

      Hi Charity, it is a good tea herb but not the same as lemon balm, which will do more to calm. richo
