Lemon Grass Plant

Asian Cuisine Classic

  • Scent and flavor of lemons
  • Repels mosquitoes
  • Fast-growing herb
Lemon Grass Plant is a favorite for planting near patios and porches because its lemony fragrance perfumes the air and helps repel mosquitoes. Growing 2-3 ft. tall, with thick masses of green and yellow stems, this herb is best when used fresh. Cut and crush the top portion for tea, or use the bottom part of the stalk for flavoring soups, curries, salads and fish. In northern regions, this tender perennial may be grown as an annual in the garden or grown in a container and brought indoors when the weather cools. Deer tend to avoid.

Plants will be shipped at the proper planting time for your area of the country using the shipping timeframes outlined below. We continually monitor weather conditions for extreme hot or cold and adjust shipping schedules as needed. Due to hot weather conditions, we are unable to ship most plant items in July and August.
