Quick Overview:

This lemony scented aromatic herb has thicker leaves than its East Indian cousin and is fantastic for keeping mosquitoes and other biting insects away, as its essential oil is Citronella. Grow plenty around your pool, patio or favorite outdoor area to stay bug free during the summer! Lemon Grass plants grow well in the ground or indoors in a pot or container.

Description

These plants are considered low maintenance, like most grasses, and they do best in full sun and well-drained locations. Periodic applications of nitrogen-rich fertilizers will ensure vigorous growth, but this treatment only needs to be applied once a year, preferably in early spring.
