White-striped Japanese Sweet Flag

Acorus

Acorus gramineus ‘Variegatus’ full sun  partial shade

Named for the pleasant, pinelike fragrance that emanates from the entire plant, Acorus is neither a grass nor a sedge. This variegated grassy perennial is an unusual member of the Arum family, once used as an aromatic addition to perfumes, gin and beer.

An illustrious, water-loving accent for damp shady borders, shallow water or at pond’s edge, its waxy evergreen fans of upright, green flattened blades emerge from slowly creeping rhizomes while boasting neat alabaster striped margins.

Size: 8"–12" high x 18"–2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.
