Citronella Grass (cymbopogon nardus) This non-edible tropical grass is the source of commercial citronella oil used in various products to repel mosquitos and other biting flies. Coarse grass quickly grows to a large clump up to 6' wide by 6' tall in warm climates. Frost sensitive grass can be overwintered indoors with adequate light in colder climates. Grass can be rubbed on clothing to repel mosquitos, but please use caution when rubbing on bare skin as it has been known to cause an allergic skin reaction in some individuals. Tender perennial zones 11+ One live starter plant in 3" pot.

Rating Mr.
Plant arrived packaged very well and in perfect condition. Grows well here in FL.as I have lemongrass which has done very well here for years. This plant seems hard to find for sale. I needed it to grow for seeds to fill a space on another property. I bought seeds on ebay from Germany with no luck at all. Nice to find the live plant.

Rating Wasn't sure what to expect..
Ordering live plants on the internet, huh? Will they arrive in a stinky brown ball of dead? Will they be 2 inches tall and give up in a week? Maybe they're all just mislabeled dandelions? Well.. nope! These guys arrived neatly wrapped and surprisingly happy. After a good watering and a couple days of fresh air, they were thriving and ready to party. This was a tough species to find, and I'm pumped to already be separating and taking cuttings of this, and the other odd varieties (especially mints) I found here.

Rating Fantastic.
Through the years I've purchased a number of these. I plant them near the doors and carport. Before Citronella, on the screen porch in the summer there would be too many mosquitoes to count. After the clumps grew 3 feet or more, the numbers are reduced to perhaps only one or two mosquitoes. It's like magic. The plants always arrive from C.Creek in good condition, and once established they need no care in my sugar-sand yard 30' above sea level. I just planted 4 and next year I'm coming back for more.

Rating Love this grass!!!
Second time ordering, years apart; both times plants arrived within days and packed with extreme care for the plants. This grass grows fast but doesn't make it through the snow. I usually bring some into the house or greenhouse for winter.

Grass arrived within 2 days, very well packaged and protected, very fresh in their individual boxes. ColonialCreekFarms is a Class A company.
