LEMON GRASS Cymbopogon citratus
Cymbopogon citratus, commonly known as West Indian lemon grass or simply lemon grass, is a tropical plant native to Maritime Southeast Asia and introduced to many tropical regions. While it can be grown in warmer temperate regions, such as the UK, it is not hardy to frost, so plants in colder region should be brought indoors for the winter.
Cymbopogon citratus contain simple, bluish-green leaves with entire margins and are linear in shape. The blades tend to be 18–36 inches long. Like other grasses, the leaves also have parallel venation.
