Plant Information

Acorus gramineus is a great addition to mixed containers for sun or shade. It adds a wonderful pop of color and stays compact. In addition, because it is evergreen, it can be used in containers for all seasons and is especially fun in winter when options for grasses are more limited. Acorus gramineus also adds color and consistency to the front of mixed plantings or simple modern plantings where it looks especially good planted en masse. Also, Acorus gramineus can be a fantastic ground cover between pavers in a location where adequate moisture is assured.

Native to Japan, this species has green, soft curved leaves up to 18 inches long. The flower spikes are about 3 inches long and emerge in spring and summer. Clumps can be up to 2 feet wide and are slow to grow.
