Acorus Calamus Sweet Flag - Marginal Aquatic Plant
Dark green iris-like foliage with a small green horn-shaped bloom. It grows from a rhizome which runs across the ground out of which the leaves rise up. It has been used in fragrances and medicinal cures since Egyptian times.
Little maintenance is required. Trim just above the water surface after foliage has died back in Autumn to tidy leaving a little material to protect new shoots.
