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 three Lemon-Grass herb plant.

Comment: I buy one of these every year from Garden Harvest Supply. By the end of the summer it is a huge, wonderful plant and I love using the stems to flavor my stir fries and soups. It is a challenge to dig up the old plant because it sets a strong root system. I love this herb!
