Lemongrass is a tropical grass family relative, and it is the ultimate edible addition to any landscaping design! The stems are used to flavor food and drinks.
The famous, tropical lemon-flavored herb of Thai cuisine. It has long, slender, pale green stems that are thick and fleshy. We just love the wonderful flavor this herb adds to soups, curries and stir-fries. We enjoy cooking with it often. This perennial must be grown in warm weather or inside to keep from freezing. We are pleased to offer this rare and much requested seed.
