Acorus gramineus 'Kin Gin Chu Ya'

Dwarf Sweet Flag

Plant Type:


Acorus gramineus 'Kin Gin Chu Ya' – This is a rare antique Japanese cultivar of Dwarf Sweet Flag with each leaf sporting a different mix of green with white and gold variegations. Adaptable as a pond marginal to drier conditions the grass-like texture will lend itself to many ornamental applications – even a decorative pot on a sunny windowsill. 'Kin Gin Chu Ya' apparently translates to “silver-gold-morning-evening”... Lovely! Clumping. Established Dwarf Sweet Flag via division.
