Plant Features

Our West Indian Lemongrass offers a lemony flavor that lends itself to be used in teas, curries, soups and stir-fries. It also has many herbal benefits, including being a source of citronella oil, an essential fragrance used in many products. Lemongrass grows best in sunny locations with moist, well-drained soils. It can be grown indoors next to a south facing window. Indoor plants should be watered just as the potting mix starts to dry.

Grew wonderfully

Wasn't much to look at when it was received (this was expected - they are clear about how they protect and prepare the plant for shipping), but it took off immediately once planted. Highly recommend.

My lemongrass plant is growing nicely in my herb garden after less than a week since planting thanks to the meticulous care & superior packaging. Grow Joy brings joy to this home!

Lemon Grass

Aloha from Hawai'i. As expected plant arrived well packaged, safe and secure. The plant appeared to have been given a haircut before shipping. Planted the following morning in a temporary pot, now about 4 weeks later new growth is looking quite nice.

From Mr | May 09, 2022


Looked nice coming out of the packaging. I put the Lemongrass in the center of my front house pots hoping for some wonderful contrast. Last year I used a couple Palm Trees. The wind in KS really blows so they browned up early. Trying something new!

Lemongrass seems healthy and looks great

Lovely plants

This is in great shape, delivered healthy. has been planted, still alive! Hoping to keep in inside over winter and keep it alive...I am in the wrong zone for outside winter for this one.

From Allison | October 16, 2020


Arrived promptly and very well packed plant looks well

From Norah | October 08, 2020

Great condition

The plant arrived in very good condition and has continued to grow well.

From Somi | September 27, 2020

Growing Great!

I was happy as to how quickly my order arrived and the good condition it arrived in. I quickly planted in pots and watered daily. After just more than two weeks, I can tell how much it has grown. It has thrived and now I just need to protect it from impending winds from Hurricane Isíasis.

From Dawn | August 01, 2020

LemonGrass Order

My order was exactly what was described and was packaged in a careful manner to protect my plants and was received in a very timely manner!

From Pamela | June 07, 2020


We cook a lot of Thai food and lemongrass can be hard to find, now I can finally grow my own. A nice healthy plant arrived, carefully packaged and is doing great in my garden, thank you!

From Kim | June 06, 2020


I received this in a timely fashion. online shopping was Easy.

From anonymous | May 07, 2020

Large size Lemongrass plant

Although I received a nice large Lemongrass plant, it is not the species I had hoped. This particular Lemongrass is easily started from seed, which I had already tried last year. The stems are not at thick as one I purchased elsewhere. That one did not do well over the winter and has only one stalk this summer, so I was hoping to try again.

From Barbara | August 16, 2019


This is my first try at Lemongrass. After about a week in the ground, the plant is doing very well.

From Olga | June 21, 2018

Healthy plant

The lemongrass herb arrived in great shape and is now thriving in our garden!

From Malain | April 05, 2018


Big plants and packaged very well for shipping.

From Faye | May 27, 2017

Fast shippment

Thank you for the fast shipment, didn't expect the Lemongrass to look so full being so short

From MARLA | May 06, 2016


Plants arrived in great packaging, alive and well

From anonymous | March 25, 2016

Great Plant

I love my Lemongrass plant. It arrived in great condition. I've had it about 3 weeks now and it's looking wonderful.

From Ilene | August 07, 2015


Shipped promptly. Arrived packaged safely. Is doing great! Replanted in a 6" pot. Will have to go bigger again in fall.

From Aaron | June 28, 2015

Wonderful Lemongrass Herb!

I buy one of these every year from GrowJoy. By the end of the summer it is a huge, wonderful plant and I love using the stems to flavor my stir fries and soups. It is a challenge to dig up the old plant because it sets a strong root system. I love this herb!

From Jessica | April 05, 2015

A Great Surprise Lemongrass

Sometimes when you go to order plants, etc. on line you can wonder "what" you are really going to get, will it look like the product visually seen on the website; well the answer is YES! I was extremely satisfied with the packing and appearance of the plants that I ordered. They were healthy and are doing great in their new home, my patio area. Thank you for delivering a wonderful product (Plants) and I will recommend your company to all of my gardening family.

From anonymous | August 14, 2014


This herb arrived alive and is still alive.

From Adoniah | June 26, 2014


We had been searching locally for Lemongrass because ours froze last winter. I love Lemongrass tea and have others enjoying it as well. We finally went online to see if we could find it, realizing there was not guarantee what we would get through the mail. One of my friends was looking for it as well, so I called her and asked if she wanted to get some with us. The price was very reasonable and our plants came quickly. When we opened the box, we were pleasantly surprised at the container our plants were mailed in. They were very healthy, and were in perfect shape. Our friend was excited to get her plant also. Ours are happily in the ground - growing well. We will order from you again in the future. It is nice to know someone is out there with great plants.

From David | June 15, 2014

Beautiful - large and healthy

This is a beautiful plant. Wish I had purchased another, but  Lemongrass is so easy to split. Is growing wonderfully in the garden has already added 2 inches in a short time since I planted it!

From Frances | April 10, 2014


I purchased this Lemongrass to put in a planter on my back porch to keep away the mosquitoes, My purchase arrived quickly and was exactly what I wanted. Thank you! Tammy B

From Tammy | April 06, 2014

mosquito repellent and lemon smell

I plant Lemongrass to keep bugs away and for the sweet smell of lemons that they put out when you cut or crush them. My granddaughter loves to spread the cuttings around the yard.

From garland | March 09, 2014

Lots of Lemongrass

From Lee | June 07, 2013

Great Lemongrass!

These were sent fast and looked great when I received them. They are doing very well in their new home, growing quick!

From Toby | May 31, 2013

Got Lemongrass--Well Done!

My experience with GrowJoy has been a nice change of pace! The ordering process was very easy, the communications about when the plants would ship was clear. They base your ship date by the Zone you are in and the plant's needs automatically. The Lemongrass arrived in very good condition with only minor browning on the tips of the grass blades. We followed the clearly written care instructions and the plant had already started putting out new growth in a week! Couldn't be happier and will be bookmarking the website for further business.

From Thomas | May 30, 2013

Lemongrass Herb Plant

Received a really nice sized Lemongrass Herb plant. Since I have trouble starting these from seed and getting them big enough for the season I am thrilled with the quality and size. It will definitely get nice and big as the summer proceeds.

From Jessica | May 23, 2013

Lemongrass Herb plants

I liked how the plants were in containers to help them arrive safely-however the box was not in good condition and was falling apart.

From Belia | May 20, 2013

Superlative Quality Plants

After being very disappointed in orders from other live plant sellers...I find myself in love forever with GrowJoy. Plant selection & varieities are always the best. The planting always arrive in great condition, larger than expected, highly viable & packaged with the utmost care. They thrive because of their pre-conditioning & grow faster than any others I have ever purchased & never ever disappoint. Customer service is superior as well. My plant home hereafter.

From anonymous | May 18, 2013
