Acorus gramineus 'Minimus Aureus'


Acorus 'Minimus Aureus' forms a slowly-spreading groundcover of finely-textured, linear, golden foliage.

This sweet flag from Japan has tilted fans of linear, gold foliage that slowly spreads to form finely-textured mats. Tiny, insignificant, yellow-green flowers bloom on lateral, sedge-like spikes. Flowers give way to very tiny, reddish, fleshy berries. Best grown in evenly moist soil or as a marginal plant in ponds.
