Acorus gramineus Aurea Miniature Golden Sweet Flag

ACORUS GRAMINEUS AUREA MINIATURE GOLDEN SWEET FLAG

Acorus gramineus 'Minimus Aureus'
Miniature Golden Sweet Flag
Quite the versatile moisture loving STEPABLE plant that can be planted directly into a shallow pond or in a woodland setting. Cheery disposition and non-invasive rhizomes are adaptable to most garden conditions. Very slow to establish, but worth the wait. Use between stepping stones and enjoy a pleasant sweet, citrus fragrance every time it is walked on.

Tips from Fran
This Acorus is such a unique plant. It is just sensational in a container and really a neat accent plant in front of boulders. However, I think this gem is best when it is placed in an area where you can brush it with your hand or feet as it gives off a unique citrus scent. It will not take a boatload of traffic, so this is why it made our exception list, but not the full dot category for paths.
