Vetiver is said to be one of the oldest plants on earth. It is a dense clumping easy-to-grow perennial grass often used to prevent soil erosion with thick aromatic roots up to 9’ long. Chopped vetiver leaves make a good mulch and essential oils extracted from the roots are used in aroma therapies and the perfume industry including brands like Opium and Miss Dior.
