Using lemon grass as a feature plant

We have a very hot infill area next to the swimming pool, its been difficult to find plants that can survive.
But to our surprise lemon grass loves the position, we will be underplanting with another grass to cover the edge of the pool.
Once established I think we will remove the odd lemon grass and replace with a small variety of palm to give additional height.
Because of the climate we will be getting a year long supply of the grass for our cooking needs, great.
