Lemongrass is a spreading plant that has many purposes both in the garden and in the kitchen! Popular in tea, soup, and curries, the citrus flavor of Lemongrass is a sweet scented plant to keep in pots and troughs. It has a real potential for growth with its upright green foliage. Honeybees love this sweet smelling herb.
Gracefully arching, strap-shaped linear leaves are light green. Leaves have a lemon scent when crushed or bruised and may be used as lemon flavor in cooking.
