Tropical and tender, this grass needs to be kept above 45 degrees F in winter. The stout, citrus-scented stems can be slow to bulk up in cool climates, but form clumps from which stems can be separated and used in Thai dishes.
Sow: Mid- to late spring
Harvest: Late spring to early fall
Soil Preference: Well-drained soil
Sun or Shade: Full sun
