Acorus, also known as Sweetflag Grass, is a native wetland plant. The grass like blades are golden with slight green margins and remain brightly colored year round in the proper conditions. Full sun during the winter months is tolerable with adequate moisture but we recommend morning sun and afternoon shade for the summer months in our Southern Region. Use as a ground cover, water plant or naturalizing in a rain garden. Under shady areas this Acorus can be run a little dryer but not tolerant of drought conditions.
