Its name is bigger than this short 2-3” tall evergreen perennial with tight tufts of bright yellow, grassy leaves that form a slowly spreading clump; leaves and roots have a wonderful sweet scent. Likes moist soil and full sun to light shade (can be grown as ban aquatic submerged at the edge of the water too!). Z5

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.

One of those plants that should be in every garden center but is mysteriously uncommon in the trade. It is that most useful of plants that grows happily in shade but looks like a grass. In this case, a wonderful bright yellow grass, and a a dwarf one at that, less than six inches tall so it even looks like well maintained grass. Like all Acorus, happiest when grown on the wet side, but doesn't seem to be terribly picky. Spreads by rhizomes to form a ground cover, though it hasn't made a weed of itself yet. Great combined with blue Hostas, and I especially love it combined with black leaved Ophiopogon. Zone 5

Versatile moisture loving plant that can be planted directly into a shallow pond or in a woodland setting. Cheery disposition and non-invasive rhizomes are adaptable to most garden conditions. Very slow to establish, but worth the wait. Use between stepping stones and enjoy a pleasant sweet, citrus fragrance every time it is walked on.

Despite the long, tongue-twisting name, the dwarf golden sweet flag is one of the most striking and certainly the cutest of the acorus. The tufts of tiny, golden, grasslike, evergold foliage make a slowly spreading patch to 2' wide in 5 years. If you get out the magnifying glass, you'll notice the tiny aroid-like tan spadices (flowers) in early summer. Acorus 'Minimus Aureus' is a bright deer-resistant dwarf groundcover in moist areas where it makes either a feature specimen or a filler between stepping stones...a real highlight in the woodland garden.
