When is a Grass NOT a Grass? Acorus 'Oborozuki'

When is a Grass NOT a Grass? Acorus 'Oborozuki'

Posted by Emerald Coast Growers on Mar 22nd 2023

When is a grass not a grass? When it's an Acorus. Sure, it looks like a grass. It's even earned the "grassy-leaved" moniker among sweet flag fans, but this is a plant all its own.

'Oborozuki' is among our favorites in this line of not-really-grasses. Gorgeous, green stripes adorn long, narrow, golden yellow leaves. For an added bonus, the foliage is sweetly scented.

Topping out at just under a foot tall, 'Oborozuki' offers the appeal of evergreen and bears tiny, yellow green blooms from late spring to mid-summer. Comfortable in sun or shade, this "grass" is an exceptionally versatile option for combination planters or groundcover.
