Acorus gramineus Oborozuki or sweet calamus is a perennial that thrives on wet marshy spots.
Even in marsh areas with up to 5 cm of water, this grass species can be well planted. Even in less wet places, this type of ornamental grass does a fine job, but gives extra water during prolonged droughts.

The place may be in the full sun or even better partial shade. The plants are between 15 and 30 cm wide.
The colorful leaf of this ornamental grass variety grows between 20 and 30 cm high and is golden yellow with green stripes and aromatic. If the leaf is bruised, it gives off a sweet smell.

This ornamental grass is also semi-evergreen and will discolour slightly in winter and deciduous in the event of a long, severe winter.
In June-July green / yellow flower spikes appear that have some resemblance to the inflorescence of sedge. After the flower spikes have finished, small fleshy berries appear that are bronze-colored.

This reed grass spreads through the rhizomes and slowly expands. However, it is not an aggressive usurer and can be used for professional planting.
Also the rhizomes are edible, they taste aromatic and very sweet. It is an ideal plant for use in water gardens, along streams and ponds, moist open woodland gardens.
Helps prevent erosion on water banks of your pond, for example. Also often used in Asian, Japanese and Zen gardens.
Acorus gramineus Oborozuki is very hardy and up to zone 5 is no problem for the plant.
Winter hardiness zone 5a (-28ºC).
