This dwarf Acorus creates a beautiful mat of bright green and gold. It is a colorful plant that grows in sun with moist-wet conditions (not standing water); it appreciates afternoon shade in very hot climates. If planted in part shade, Acorus gramineus ‘Minimus Aureus’ can tolerate somewhat drier soil, but it is best not to let it dry out as the leaf tips may suffer. Only four inches tall, it spreads slowly by rhizomes, which makes it a superb ground cover for damp areas. It also performs well in rock gardens and can be used to fill spaces between stepping stones. Try it also in moist woodland settings and near water gardens and streams. Like other Acorus, Dwarf Golden Variegated Sweet Flag emits a citrus-like scent when crushed and it creates a lovely accent color where it is least expected.
