Item description

Sweet Flag (Acorus americanus) Sweet Flag grows in many places throughout the world. Botanically named Acorus calamus in general, Acorus calamus americanus is the native North American species. The two are very similar except that the non-natives are sterile, donโ€™t produce seeds and spread through rhizomes. Our native, which is offered here is seed grown. These plants have a wonderful aroma in the leaves and rhizomes when crushed. They are obligate wetland plants and are great in ponds or bogs. The plant comes in a 3.5 inch pot. Soak upon arrival. Keep moist at all times. Description: Erect, sword shaped basal leaves resembling an Iris. 1-4 ft tall. Leaves have a pleasant, spicy aroma when crushed. Flowers are tiny, yellowish-green and occur on a spadix extending from leaf. Culture: Full Sun, wet soil, OBL. Blooms late spring to mid summer. Zones 3-8. Companion plants: Cattail, Cardinal Flower, Pickeralweed. Wildlife benefit: Muskrats are fond of the rhizomes Eco-friendly grower All of my plants are grown using earth friendly techniques, from seed collection to watering with rainwater. Pots are 100% recycled, some are re-used containers, others are made from recycled plastics. Plants are fed with PLANT-TONE by Espoma, an organic fertilizer and/or worm castings. I grow plants that can replace those lost to development in order to help sustain wildlife that depend on them. You can be assured that you are not getting plants from the wild, which is unethical and further contributes to habitat loss. ***Check my other listings. I am adding more wildlife-friendly native perennials everyday*** Payment, shipping and handling policies We gladly accept PAYPAL and POSTAL MONEY ORDERS. Shipping is 9.00 for the first plant. Additional plants ship for 1.00 each. Local pickup is available and preferred. Some plants will be pickup only if the are too big to ship economically. Shipping price also includes the price of transportation as well as packing materials as plants must be well packed to withstand shipping. Prior to shipment, all plants will be inspected, pruned, labeled, individually wrapped and banded, then placed securely in their box. This is done to ensure you receive quality plants. They will then be shipped via Priority mail on the Monday or Tuesday after payment is received. This is done to ensure they arrive quickly and safely. Large orders may be sent FedEx. We do not ship in extreme weather conditions. We reserve the right to hold shipments in extreme weather until plants can travel safely. For local customers who wish to pick up their order to save on shipping, please email us before ordering so you will not be charged for shipping. Native plant range and our shipping (PLEASE READ) Most of our plants are also found native to the Midwest, however that is generally the extent of their range. In an effort to keep our native plants native to their natural range, we do not ship west of the Great Plain States. This includes Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, Idaho, Utah, Nevada, California, Oregon, Washington, Alaska, Hawaii. If you live in these states, please do not order. Should there be any problems with your order, please notify us within 48 hours of receipt. Sometimes, despite our best care, plant can get dehydrated in transit. This is usually easily remedied, by soaking the plant in a shallow dish of water in a shady location for 1 -2 hours
