Slender fountains of lemony freshness

Days to Maturity: 95 from direct sow

An essential herb for Asian cuisine, the leaves and stems of lemongrass can be used fresh or dried to impart a distinct lemon flavor. Lemongrass also makes a wonderful ingredient for hot teas, and is attractive enough to grow simply as an ornamental in patio pots or in the sunny garden.

This clump-forming perennial resembles an ornamental grass with its aromatic cane-like stems arising from a central base. The lemon-scented, linear, strap leaves reach 3 feet long, falling over at the tip. It is a honeybee magnet, and a useful addition to any garden friendly to butterflies, bees, and other wildlife.

Lemongrass thrives in moist soil and full sun, growing 3 to 5 feet tall within a single season. The seed germinates in 7 to 14 days, and the plant reaches a good size for picking about 3 months later. If you begin the seeds indoors, transplant the young plants at about 6 inches high.

Lemongrass is hardy only in zones 9-11, so if you live north of its range, you may want to grow it in containers, where it can be brought to a bright, frost-free location for winter. Quite long-lived, it will fulfill all your culinary needs for many seasons.

Lemon all the way through

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

This looks like an ornamental grass as it gets taller and my cats would rather eat this than catmint or cat grass! The lemon smell is so nice! I like to put it chopped up on my chicken as I grill it. I just had to use the taller inner leaves and stems so the cats could eat the outside leaves!
