  • Model: HERBLIP

Lippia dulces, white, 8-20", June-September. Leaves have incredible sweet flavor/taste due to [hernandulcin-a compound said to be 1000 times sweeter than sugar!]. Use sparingly as the major component of the plant(53%)is made up of the essential oil, camphor, which is toxic to the nervous system. The best, at least one of the best, herbs for a hanging basket or patio container. The leaves attract a reddish-purple tinge with cool weather. Not hardy, though! Down to 45degrees, then bring it in! It will start growing again. The flowers are very attractive. They appear as little balls along the trailing/sprawling stems. Native to Mexico and the Caribbean. Historically used by the Aztecs both culinary and medicinal, and introduced to the Spanish when the hit touched/landed on ground. Sun, bright light. zone8 "Sweet Aztec Herb'
