Lemon is a perennial grass native to India and Southeast Asia. It can grow up to 6' tall in warm, humid climates with plenty of sunlight. Evergreen in zone 9-11 or indoors, this plant offers long, slender leaves with sharp edges and a reddish-purple base at each stem. Crushed foliage offers a lemon aroma and flavor, excellent for culinary use and teas. Drought-tolerant, versatile, and sun-loving, this plant flourishes in warm, humid climates with minimal care. 

Sell Lemon to customers looking for Lemon Grass for culinary use or low-maintenance ornamental grass for a container or landscape bed. This plant offers fragrant foliage, upright, slender leaves, and culinary benefits. It flourishes in almost any soil and climate, thriving with regular water in full sun. Grow Lemon for culinary use alongside Basil, Mint, and Cilantro, or create a striking tropical landscape by growing it with Croton, Hibiscus, Plumeria, Bird of Paradise, and Bougainvillea. Enjoy fresh or dried leaves in soups, stir-fries, curries, teas, and Asian cuisine.
