Lemongrass - Cymbopogon citratus
Lemongrass is a perennial grass that was intentionally introduced in tropical and subtropical regions of the world for the essential oil extracts from its leaves and to be used as a culinary and medicinal herb. It is a tall grass with rhizomes and densely tufted fibrous roots, which tillers profusely and has the potential to escape from cultivation. Lemongrass is a tropical plant native to Southeast Asia. The dried leaves can also be brewed into a tea, either alone or as a flavoring in other teas. The herb has antibacterial, antidiarrheal, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory properties. This tropical grass grows in dense clumps that can grow to 6 ft in height and about 4 ft in width.
