Lemongrass - East Indian

$14.90 ($14.90-$18.75 choose a size)

Aromatic, tall, clump forming lemon scented grass, native to east India. It is a source of the essential oil for perfumery, culinary and medicinal purposes. It likes high rainfall and warm temperatures, and is not frost tolerant. It is more tropical than its cousin Cymbopogon citratus, with thicker, tougher leaves also. In agroforestry, it is well suited as a living mulch and can be cut regularly in the growing season. Vigorous, it can help contain running weeds from spreading when planted as a border. This plant does produce viable seed, so take care that this does not spread into native bushland or pasture
