Details

Acorus 'Oborozuki' has attractive variegated leaves streaked with yellow that brighten up shade beds or pots. This perennial ornamental grass forms a grass-like tuft of narrow, linear leaf blades that fan outward. Unlike the wild-type sweet flag, the cultivar 'Oborozuki' is compact and easy to grow if provided with rich evenly moist soil and a site that is shaded from afternoon sun. Tufts will slowly spread over time to form a dense ground cover.
