Our native Lizard's Tail is one of only two members of the Saururacaea, the other Asian counterpart being listed in the perennial section, this moisture loving perennial can reach 1.25m in height topped by 30cm long inflorescences that taper like a fragrant white lizards tail. If you don't already grow it, buy some and get them planted immediately, don't tempt fate and piss off the lizard god, his wrath should be avoided at all costs, he's already licking his eyeballs at the prospect of new victims.
