For over three decades, Acorus gramineus 'Ogon' has been a landscape staple in the gardens here at Juniper Level. Acorus gramineus 'Ogon' is a 1975 Barry Yinger introduction from Japan...a glaringly beautiful, evergreen perennial with brilliant yellow, deer-resistant foliage, brightest from fall through spring. While the overall effect is bright yellow, Acorus gramineus 'Ogon' actually has a vertical green stripe down the side of each 1/8" wide plasticized leaf. Acorus gramineus 'Ogon' is very easy to grow, forming a fabulous 1' tall slowly-widening patch...best in moist shade. It's roots have antifungal and antibacterial properties.
