Lemon Grass is a culinary and traditional medicinal grass. The leaves and stems are used in cooking and for making herbal tea. Plants grow to a height of about 1.2m with arching, blue-green lemon-scented leaves. There are flowers in summer.
Lemon Grass can be grown in pots or directly in the garden. They grow best in sun to part shade and most well drained soils. The plants are killed by frost, so they can be grown as annuals or grow in pots and protect from frosts over winter or brought indoors.
