This fragrant plant from Madagascar grows in exotic climates all over the world.

Its leaves are long and thin, with a sharp edge, stiff, light green-greyish.
They grow in dense clumps for 3 to 4 years, then collected 3 times a year.
Its smell is fresh, green and lemony.
Madagascar lemongrass is best known for its benefits for the body.
