Lemon-Grass Herb Plant

SKU: GR-HE-LEMG-MM
The 'Lemon Grass' Herb Plant is a perennial clumping grass in hot climates, and a requisite flavor ingredient in many Asian and Caribbean cuisines. Also spelled as one word, Lemongrass, it can be used dried or powdered—but its lemony flavor is most pronounced when fresh. Lemongrass can be sliced and added to cooking foods, but most chefs prefer to obtain its sweet-fragranced oils from large, bruised pieces that are removed before serving, since its tough stalks are difficult to chew. Lemongrass adds lemony flavor without the acid of lemons. Lemongrass is commonly used in teas, curries, soups and stir-fries. It is the source of citronella oil, an essential fragrance in the perfume industry. It has a calming effect as a medicinal herb, and is a popular natural mosquito repellant. Like most herbs, Lemongrass thrives in full sun. It prefers sandy, well-drained soil. Under ideal conditions, it will reach heights of 6 feet! Each 3-inch pot contains one Lemon-Grass herb plant.

"Got Lemon Grass--Well Done!"

Thomas P on 5/30/2013 9:53:10 PM

Comment: My experience with Garden Harvest Supply has been a nice change of pace! The ordering process was very easy, the communications about when the plants would ship was clear. They base your ship date by the Zone you are in and the plant's needs automatically. The lemon-grass arrived in very good condition with only minor browning on the tips of the grass blades. We followed the clearly written care instructions and the plant had already started putting out new growth in a week! Couldn't be happier ... More details
