Acorus gramineus 'Ogon'

Acorus gramineus 'Ogon'

Sweet Flag

'Ogon' Sweet Flag has bright yellow stiffly upright leaves that are a vivid addition to a wet site in the shade.  The leaves release a fresh citrus scent when pinched or bruised.  Clumps of Acorus 'Ogon' will get larger with age as they spread slowly by rhizomes.  This Sweet Flag is evergreen so it provides great winter interest.  Brighter light lends more golden color, while deeper shade highlights green.   Introduced into the US by Barry Yinger. 

PRN Preferred: Both salt and wet site tolerant, ‘Ogon’ adds a yearlong splash of chartreuse to the shade garden.
