you should ask for LEMON VERBENA. it has pointy, medium green leaves about 2-3" long. has a great lemony fragrance. it does get woody though, not the most attractive herb i ever saw. it's not winter hardy, pot it up or just buy another one each year. it's great in potpourris. if you like lemony smelling herbs, try lemon balm(melissa officinalis) atrue perennial with scalloped arrowhead-shaped leaves. good luck, and enjoy
