Lemongrass is an elegant and beautiful choice for planters, beds, and large ornamental groupings. In the fall, the slender spires turn a stunning shade of red. This herb is also well known for its amazing aroma as its stalks are infused with a strong lemon fragrance that is brought out with even the slighest brush of the foliage. This aroma makes this plant perfect for teas and other beverages, as well as a delicious addition to soups, stir fries and Thai cooking.
Culinary Usage: In recipes that call for minced Lemongrass, chop only the bottom 4". Bruising the leaves helps release the fragrant, flavorful oils. A good source of Vitamin C, too!
