Lemongrass Plants

Cymbopogon citratus

The lemon grass plant is a culinary herb native of West India, and is widely used in Asian, Caribbean and Mexican cuisine. Known for its light, lemony flavor, it adds the same fruity citrus taste as an actual lemon, without any bitter consequences. Tastes great in teas or makes a good seasoning for stir frys and fish! Lemon Grass can seem intimidating, as it is a little tricky to dissect for preparation. For some help, see our blog on Preparing Lemongrass!

A valuable medicinal addition to your garden, lemon grass plants grow easily and contains anti-fungal and antispasmodic properties that make it a great cure for muscle spasms, cramps, arthritis, and gas. Chocked full of beta-carotene, a potent natural antioxidant, Lemongrass boosts the immune system, improves blood circulation and reduces blood pressure, and may help prevent some types of cancer, including colon cancer.

This lemony scented aromatic herb has thicker leaves than its East Indian cousin and is fantastic for keeping mosquitoes and other biting insects away, as its essential oil is Citronella. Grow plenty around your pool, patio or favorite outdoor area to stay bug free during the summer! Lemon Grass plants grow well in the ground or indoors in a pot or container.

Lemongrass Plant Uses: Lemongrass has a light, lemony taste that compliments meals requiring a lemon flavor, without the acidic or bitter after taste. The lemon grass plant also has anti-fungal and antispasmodic properties that lend many uses as a medicinal herb. The natural chemicals in this herbaceous grass also deter mosquitoes.

Tips: Grow in a pot or container in a sunny spot indoors and enjoy this delicious herb all season long! The inner, white part of the stalk is best for seasoning delicate dishes, while the tougher outer green half is best used in recipes like soups and stews. Lemongrass grows quickly and can also be easily divided at the root ball to encourage healthier growth.

Arrived Ready to Plant! June 3, 2019
Reviewer: Nancy Glidden from Englewood, OH United States  
I love Lemongrass and can usually overwinter it inside. Alas, last year's crop didn't make it through the winter. I will need to order more!

I absolutely LOVE this lemongrass June 3, 2019
Reviewer: Kat Hooper from Lewisburg , PA United States  
Although it’s early in the season and my Lemongrass is still on the small side, the plant itself was in fantastic condition when it arrived.  I’m sure if our weather in central PA would be consistent with where the normal temps are at this time of year, the plant would be further along as in past years.  Love the Growers Exchange.....their herbs are absolutely gorgeous and extremely healthy even though they’re shipped to my home address.

I have it all around my pergola and when the breeze comes through and rustles the grass its sweet lemony aroma erupts.
