Lemon Grass is a tropical herb that's an essential component in many Asian culinary dishes, especially Thai and Vietnamese cuisine. Known for its fresh, lemony flavor, it adds a delightful zing to soups, teas, and curries. Beyond its culinary use, Lemon Grass is often appreciated for its ornamental beauty, featuring tall, slender stalks and graceful, arching leaves. This elegant plant provides a captivating textural contrast in gardens and landscapes. As a perennial in tropical climates and an annual in cooler areas, Lemon Grass thrives in full sun and well-drained soil. Whether you grow it for its flavor or its aesthetics, Lemon Grass can be a unique and rewarding addition to your garden.

Start Lemon Grass seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost or directly outdoors after the last frost, at a depth of 1/4 inch. Choose a location with well-draining soil and full sun. Keep the soil consistently moist until seedlings emerge, which can take 21-30 days. Transplant or thin seedlings to a spacing of 24 inches apart in rows 2-3 feet apart. In cooler climates, grow Lemon Grass in containers and bring indoors during winter months.
