POND PLANT BIO:
Variegated sweet flag is a deciduous, aquatic perennial with 5-foot-long bright green leaves with creamy, longitudinal stripes. Its flowers are insignificant, but give way to tiny fleshy berries. Foliage and rhizomes are sweetly fragrant when bruised, hence the common name. Sweet flag makes a striking statement at the shallow end of a pool, in a bog garden, or in a marshy woodland area!
