Quedlinburger Niederliegende is higher in essential-oil content than other lemon balms. The list of reasons to love and grow lemon balm is endless – it has culinary, cosmetic and medicinal values, and a beautiful lemon scent. The tongue-twister of a name hails from the town of Quedlinburg, which sits just north of the Harz mountains in Germany’s Saxony-Anhalt region. Meanwhile, ‘Niederliegende’ can be translated from German as ‘procumbent’, a botanical adjective meaning ‘growing along the ground without setting roots forth’. This easy-to-grow perennial belongs in every garden!
