This lemongrass differs from the East Indian type, which can be grown from seed, the West Indian can only be propagated vegetatively. It has a more bulbous base and larger stems, often preferred in culinary uses with a strong lemon-citrus flavor and scent. It works as an ornamental grass too, in a container or in the ground. We have even brought it indoors for the winter. Full sun. Grows 24-36”. Zone 10-11. Starts are 2 ½” and are shipped in the spring.
West Indian Lemongrass is one of three herbs included in our Aromatic Herb Plant Collection. Take a look at the 3 vibrant scents this collection can bring to your garden.
