Unnamed Hi Lynda,

Lemon verbena is a tropical plant that is probably best found at a plant nursery. I would suggest substituting lemon peel and take out the peel a little sooner. You could also use lemongrass, or lemon thyme place in a little muslin bag to keep the tiny leaves intact. Taste the syrup to see how you like the taste. You just want a lttle hint of lemon.
