Common Balm, more commonly known as Lemon Balm, is a garden herb that readily escapes cultivation and ends up all over your yard.  It’s pretty cool when you’re mowing and all of the sudden it smells lemony!

Common Balm readily moves outside your garden and creates lemony clumps of green around your property.
