Acorus gramineus 'Ogon,' is a cultivar of sweet flag, a fragrant, semi-evergreen ornamental grass native to Asia. Also known as golden variegated sweet flag, the 'Ogon' cultivar differs from cultivar 'Variegatus' in the color of its variegation, taking on a golden yellow hue in contrast with its green foliage as opposed to the cream-white variegation present in 'Variegatus.'
Although Acorus gramineus produces flowers from spring to early summer on small, sedge-like spikes, flowers are insignificant and unremarkable. The true draw for 'Ogon' is the additional splash of color that comes from the cultivar's natural variegation, the plant's fragrant foliage, and its ease of cultivation. Tolerance to wet soils and inundation, as well as a slow-spreading behavior, makes this sweet flag 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 also makes it well suited for container plantings.
