Acorus gramineus 'Variegatus', similar to 'Ogon,' is a variegated cultivar of Acorus gramineus, a versatile perennial grass that grows well in a variety of conditions, so long as it's provided with a steady supply of water. The 'Variegatus' cultivar differs from 'Ogon' in the color of its variegation, taking on a creamy or buttery white in contrast against the typical green foliage, rather than the golden yellow of 'Ogon.'
Although Acorus gramineus produces flowers from spring to early summer on small,sedge-like spikes, flowers and insignificant and unremarkable. The true draw for 'Variegatus' is the additional splash of color that comes from the cultivar's natural variegation, fragrant foliage and ease of cultivation. Tolerance to wet soils and inundation, as well as a slow-spreading behavior makes Acorus gramineus a suitable ornamental ground cover for wet sites without posing the risk of becoming noxious or invasive, and a compact size of 6-12" tall and wide makes it an equally good pick for container plantings.
