Product Details



    Acorus Gramineus 'Ogon' is a moderate growing groundcover plant that can be grown in USDA Plant Hardiness Zones 6A through 6A. It matures to an average height of 1 inch to 1 foot and an average width of 6 inches to 1 foot, depending on climate and other environmental factors. It prefers growing in a location that provides shade and grows best when planted in loam soil that is well drained. The foliage is chartreuse in color. It attracts wildlife and is resistant to deer.

    Sweet Flag Acorus Ogon can be useful in the landscape along woodland borders and also in rock or xeriscape gardens.


    More about Golden Sweet Flag...

    Golden Sweet Flag, Acorus gramineus 'Ogon', is a neat looking, maintenance-free ornamental grass whose bright gold foliage accented with green stripes really stand out in the garden. The plant forms very attractive, soft-textured, weeping mounds in the garden making it an excellent choice as an edger or in mass plantings.

    Golden Sweet Flag is very easy to grow provided the conditions are right. It prefers a consistently damp soil and is even suitable for use in the margin of the garden pond. It will tolerate full sun, however, in hotter climates, will prefer some shade in the afternoon. In our trial gardens in Zone 8 of Georgia it grows best in shade or morning sun with afternoon shade.

    Golden Sweet Flag is essentially maintenance free. It slowly naturalizes by spreading roots but is not invasive at all. The clump just grows slightly larger every year. We rarely fertilize or prune it. In areas that experience colder winters the foliage may need to be groomed or cut back to the ground before new growth emerges in spring.

    Golden Sweet Flag has many uses in the garden and in containers. It makes an especially attractive edger along a walk or path and is an excellent choice for groundcover in areas where soil stays consistently damp.  Its smaller size makes it very suitable for miniature water features such as half barrels or fountains. It makes a very nice grassy-textured accent in the shady to partially shaded container gardens.

    Plant Golden Sweet Flag in your shade garden and it will be the brightest plant in your woodland garden in winter.
