A beautiful tree that unfortunately in Europe only can survive in winter in the Mediterranean. In the colder areas you can keep this species in a tub and you will have to prune regularly. You can then keep it in, for example, in a conservatory or in a not too warm living room where it does not get colder than 5 degrees.

The leaves, which have an extremely strong lemon smell, can be used to make insect-repellent products.
