East Indian lemongrass (Cymbopogon flexuosus) is one of the quickest and easiest herbs to grow. It's also one of the most useful herbs to have in your garden.


Long blue-green leaves, which can easily reach 4 feet in length are thin and flexible, are the reason this plant is coveted.


East Indian lemongrass is the species most commonly grown for its lemon scent and flavoring in a wide array of products. The fresh or dried leaves are useful in tea or other drinks, as well as soups, stews, fish, meats, or any dish that would benefit from a lemon flavor.


Leaves can be harvested any time of the year, but they do have a sharp edge which can slice your skin similar to a paper cut, so be careful when cutting them.


Lemon Grass thrives in moist soil and full sun, growing 36 - 60 inches tall. Grow in containers so that the plant can be moved indoors during winter. It is a tropical perennial grown as an annual in most parts of the United States. It is not tolerant of frost and any heavy frost will kill it.
