Acorus Calamus - Sweet Scented Rush


A tall, emergent plant, this rush has leaves that give off a sweet scent when crushed or rubbed.

 In ancient times these rushes were cut and used as floor covering in huts - natures air fresheners!

The creeping rootstock grows out into shallow water, producing multiple shoots. Roots hang down into the water and the plant has good filtration properties. The brilliant green erect leaves provide excellent habitat for emerging dragonflies and other pond life. Plant in a medium container using aquatic soil, cover with pea gravel.

Trim decaying foliage in Autumn.

This plant comes to you in a 1 litre pond pot and is ready to be put straight into your pond or bog garden.
