Description How to Grow More Info Delivery

An aquatic, deciduous grass suited to bog gardens or a shallow pond shelf. Tufts of erect, slightly arching foliage with striking cream and green variegation. In spring the bases are bright pink. Acorus gramineus ‘Argenteostriatus’ forms rhizomes like an iris and is commonly known as ‘Sweet Rush’ because the roots and leaves have a spicy scent. They were traditionally used to scatter over earthern floors to add fragrance. Height: 80cm (31in). Spread: 60cm (24in).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.
