What are the pros?

What are the cons?


Though not from Baker Creek, I have grown lemongrass in Zone 8b for years. A Thai co-worker gave me a few little stalks and I planted them near the house. From those 2 small slips, I have divided and re-planted all around the house and garden. It makes a fantastic accent as a tall and willowy grass. One variety is "Eastern" lemongrass and is not as tall or thick-stalked, and one is "Western" lemongrass that is more widely used for Asian culinary purposes. The most showy clumps near the porch I dig up and place in a 3-gallon bucket in a south-facing (but shady) window over the winter with just enough water to cover the bare roots. They yellow just a bit until planting again in March, but then they're off and growing again. Other clumps I cut to just above the ground and let them be, and they over winter easily in the Deep South.
