Cymbopogon citratus

Our instant tea plant at the nursery; just a few blades in a cup of hot water. Try sweetening with honey. A tropical ornamental grass. Will grow well anywhere indoors. Used in many Thai recipes and is the source for citral, the essential oil responsible for citronella's lemony scent. Thai women crinkle up a handful and put in in their bath water to prevent wrinkles! An ornamental clumping grass space a 4' circle Zones 9-10 and can be grown as a outside annual in the north.
