Acorus gramineus

12th November 2008

The Japanese Sweet Rush is a vigourous perennial species - there is no good reason for growing it in the garden if I am honest. It has spawned a host of variegated forms that are delightful details in a container or some such. As the clumps expand they take on the untidy aspect of sheeps wool caught on barbed wire. There is something disorganised and fibrous aboout them.
Like ugly children, the attraction is without explanation.
