 "Patio Standard" Meyer Lemons are trained as single trunk trees so that their habit is tidy for planters and seating areas.

Meyer Lemon

Citrus × meyeri

 

Lemon trees blossom in Spring and the fruit is heavy in Fall.  Both the flower and fruit of the Meyer lemon are intoxicatingly fragrant and a "patio standard" tree form is a welcome addition to any seating area. 

 

Meyer lemons are among the most cold hardy citrus for our area - plant them South facing, close to your building for protection in Winter.
