Golden Dwarf Sweet-Flag, Japanese Rush

Easily grown in average, medium to wet soils in full sun to part shade. Scorched leaf tips will occur if soils are allowed to dry out. Slowly naturalizes by spreading roots, but is not too aggressive. This grassy-leaved sweet flag cultivar is a dwarf plant which looks like grass or small iris, but is actually a member of the acorus family. It has insignificant flowers and is grown primarily as a ground cover or accent. Features iris-like tufts of narrow, grass-like, variegated leaf blades (6-12″ tall and 1/4″ wide) which are striped with yellow and green but primarily appear as yellow. Foliage is sweetly fragrant. Inconspicuous sedge-like flower spikes of tiny densely-packed, greenish-yellow flowers appear in late spring to early summer. Flowers give way to tiny fleshy berries. Mass as a golden ground cover in small areas of water gardens, along streams or ponds or in moist open woodland gardens. Also effective in rock gardens or border fronts or as small landscape accents as long as the soil moisture requirements can be met. Also very attractive in containers.
