This aroid relative (former member of the "family" before the molecular taxonomy mob ousted it) masquerades perfectly as a dramatic, upright iris. The vivid white and green banded, deer-resistant leaves make this one of the most strikingly beautiful vertical accent plants in the garden! Sweet flag spreads slowly by means of a very thick above-ground rhizome. Sweet flag loves a moist spot such as a bog but will grow in ordinary garden soils...a real easy-to-grow, carefree prize!

(VARIEGATED SWEET FLAG) Named for its sweetly fragrant leaves and rhizomes, this baby is happiest with wet feet (goes to 9” deep aquatic), but will grow in ordinary garden conditions as long as it doesn’t dry out. The grassy Iris like foliage is about 2’ tall on slowly creeping rhizomes (the rhizomes are cool looking and tend to stay on the surface). Also great in a pot in a saucer of water… Just a nice foliage accent plant! Z4 3” pot
