Interesting Notes about Cymbopogon 'Lemon Grass':

Cymbopogon citratus, commonly called lemongrass, is a frost-tender clumping perennial grass that is popularly used as a lemony flavoring in Thai, Vietnamese, Laotian and Cambodian cooking and is widely cultivated in Southeast Asia for that purpose. 

 Plant outside in spring after last frost date. In fall just before first frost, stalks can be harvested (cut off top leaves and save 6-" sections of the bulbous shoot bases) and frozen for culinary use during the winter.

Sections of the mature leaf blades may be used fresh or dried for flavoring teas, soups or stews.
