Lemongrass 'East Indian'

East Indian Lemongrass is a perennial variety that flowers and has viable seeds. The rich, lemon-scented leaves can be steeped in boiling water to make a stress-relieving herbal tea. Better flavour than the sterile West Indian lemongrass variety, however the leaf bases are not as thick so are less suited for cooking. 40 seeds per packet.
