Cymbopogon schoenanthus is a compact, tufted, evergreen, perennial grass. It grows about 30 - 60cm tall. The plant is gathered from the wild, and also occasionally cultivated, for its essential oil which is used medicinally and in perfumery. Much esteemed by the ancient Greeks and Romans, the oil is still sold sometimes in local markets.
