More About Sweetflag

  • Sweetflag provides great buffers for streams and ponds
  • Acorus americanus has aromatic foliage

Acorus americanus, native sweetflag, has aromatic foliage, similar to Iris in shape, yet unpalatable to geese and deer. Sweetflag spreads moderately from a thick rhizome forming a dense mat along pond shores and stream banks. Acorus americanus provides bold vertical accent in full sun to partial shade and is drought tolerant.
