Tender Ornamental Grasses

Cymbopogon citratus

Lemon Grass
We sought out this exotic ingredient for Thai recipes and found that Lemon Grass makes an interesting container subject, forming tall reed-like clumps with a lemony scent. Grows 3-4' tall and clumps quite quickly. Be sure to bring indoors before a frosty night, as this is a tropical grass.
