Acorus gramineus 'Minimus Aureus' (Araceae)
(ay-COR-us gram-IN-ee-us)
Dwarf Golden Sweet Flag

Only 2-3" in height but brilliant yellow in color, this little guy makes a stunning groundcover in moist, partly shaded locations, but handles full sun just fine with enough moisture. With leaves that resemble a tiny golden iris, Dwarf Golden Sweet Flag is especially striking interplanted with contrasting dark-leaved plants, such as purple Heucheras or Black Mondo Grass. The evergold foliage is the strength of this plant, and keeps it glowing all year long.
