Acorus calamus commonly known as Vekhand, Sweet flag is a medicinal plant. It is a sterile triploid. Although native to Europe, it was introduced into North America by settlers in the 1600s and has naturalized overtime throughout much of the U.S. (particularly in the northeast and central portions) including a number of counties in the State of Missouri. Mature leaves have one slightly wavy edge and a prominent midrib. Plants thrive in wet, boggy soils and are commonly grown today as foliage accents in water gardens and pond margins.


Planting & Caring -

Easily grown in average, medium to wet soils in full sun to part shade. Grows well in both boggy conditions (including shallow standing water to 9” deep) and consistently moist garden soils. In water gardens, plant rhizomes slightly below the soil surface in moist soils at the water’s edge or in containers set in shallow water. Rhizomes or existing clumps may also be planted in containers sunk into wet boggy areas to help prevent any possible invasive spread. Scorched leaf tips will occur if soils are allowed to dry out. Appreciates some relief from hot summer sun (e.g., afternoon shade or filtered sun) when grown in hot summer climates such as the St. Louis area. Slowly naturalizes by creeping rhizomes and can form large colonies in the wild.
