Sweet Flag
Family: Acoraceae
Origin: Japan
Small shrub 2-5 ftFull sunSemi-shadeBog or aquaticRegular waterModerate waterOrnamental foliageSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeFlood tolerant

The plants are evergreen in warmer climates, but they will die back to ground level in colder climates. Although they are water lovers, this species can take quite a bit of drought. I have seen this plant used as an accent in dry rock gardens.
