Acorus gramineus-Sweet Flag

Propagating Acorus or Sweet Flag which is similar to Liriope, it spreads by rhizomes which can be transplanted in the spring, but unlike Liriope, Acorus is not a grass. Leaves are either green, variegated or white. Loves water but will also tolerate drought, is evergreen in warmer climates but like Liriope the tips may burn so prune back in the spring, but may not be as invasive as Liriope. Reaches a height of 10"-12".
