(Cymbopogon flexuosus)

This species of lemongrass is the source of the essential oil used as flavoring or scent in many commercial products. The active compounds in lemongrass leaves have anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties. Fast-growing and prolific! Perennial in warm climates, but may be grown as an annual, or container grown in colder climates.

I offer a generous amount of uncleaned seed, right off the plant. You'll probably end up with more plants than you can use, but I can't give an exact number. I never clean the seed when germinating them for my own use.
