Cymbopogon citratus, commonly called 'Lemongrass', is a clumping perennial grass that is popularly used as a lemony flavoring in Asian cooking and is widely cultivated in Southeast Asia for that purpose. It is also an outstanding ornamental grass that lends great beauty to garden areas. It forms a dense rounded clump of foliage to 2-3’ tall and as wide. Gracefully-arching, strap-shaped linear leaves  are light green. Leaves emit a lemony fragrance when bruised. This rapid-growing ornamental grass can be used for herb gardens, borders, along walkways or in containers. It is easily grown in well-drained soil in full sun. (Pot size: 1.5 gallon)
