Performs well in rock gardens and can be used to fill spaces between stepping stones and in moist woodland settings and near water gardens and streams. Like other Acorus, it emits a citrus-like scent when crushed and it creates a lovely accent color where it is least expected.Deer hate it!
Grows in sun or shade with moistconditions; it appreciates afternoon shade in very hot climates.
