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.

    Michigan Heirlooms went SOLAR!

     

    I had been wanting to utilize some alternative energy source for years. One day, I saw an ad on Facebook sponsored by PowerHome Solar & Roofing and I clicked on it. I couldn't have imagined where that simple click was going to take me.

    Zero out of pocket expense.

    91% of the entire properties electrical use manufactured right in my backyard.
