    Description

Acorus calamus - Sweet Flag

This is a listing for a pack of 100 seeds.

This is a perennial native to the wetlands of Asia, but widespread via trade across the world.  It has a mass of common names including beewort, bitter pepper root, calamus root, flag root, gladdon, myrtle flag, myrtle grass, myrtle root, myrtle sedge, pine root, rat root, sea sedge, sweet cane, sweet cane, sweet cinnamon, sweet grass, sweet myrtle, sweet root, sweet rush, and sweet sedge. It is however most commonly known as Sweet Flag, due to its similarity (in terms of scent) to the Irises found in the UK (known locally as Flags). It has a widespread history of use in both herbal medicine and cooking.

The plant grows from a rhizomatus root stock and has strap like leaves. It produces a rush like flowering stem from the centre of the rosette of leaves. It grows well in damp and waterlogged places and if grown in dry locales, it requires to be watered any time there is no natural moisture available.  It is hardy down to Zone 6 and it can also be used in containers and other planters.


Fast and easy from seed, it may even flower the first year from an early sowing.  Full instructions can be downloaded from my website, details of which are on my 'Me' page
