Originally from India, where it was treasured for many health-promoting properties, this sturdy perennial grass grows in foliage clumps and flourishes in warm, humid environments. Its ornamental blue-green leaves cascade up and out, reaching heights of up to 4 feet. Trauma to the blades will release its distinctively soft lemony scent laced with earthy undertones and a ginger zing. Tremendously popular in North America and Europe, this powerhouse plant is widely used in an array of Asian dishes, teas, perfumes, cosmetics and wellness applications.**
