Acorus gramineus ‘Ogon’ Golden Variegated Sweet Flag


Acorus gramineus ‘Ogon’-Golden Variegated Sweet Flag

Similar in size and growth habit to Variegated Sweet Flag, but has beautiful golden-colored leaves with green stripes. Brightens shade gardens and moist, sunny areas.

Acorus is a neutral grass. Evergreen or neutral grasses are usually plants that look like grasses but aren’t actually classified as grasses, they are generally called grass-like plants.

Butter-yellow sword-like blades add wonderful contrast all season; likes moisture

Perfect for containers, borders and beds

QUICK FACTS: Warm season, gold-variegated foliage

Grows to 15 inches, Plant in  shade-sun area and it likes  wet conditions.

Hardy Zones 5-10

Origin: Japan, China

This was a new grass-like plant I carried last season 2009 and I really thought it was quite unusual , mostly by the way it seem to lay.. It may a great backdrop to pots and added such color to containers.

Happy Gardening
