Acorus gramineus 'Licorice' is a 1997 Plant Delights/JLBG introduction of a US Botanical Garden import from China. This unique form of the evergreen groundcover, Acorus gramineus, forms narrow tufts of evergreen grass-like foliage, but when brushed or crushed releases the strong fragrance of licorice... a delight and a must for herbies and licorice addicts, as well as a durable moist soil groundcover for areas where an occasional barefoot stroll is desired! It's been far too long since we offered this amazing selection, so its time for a return engagement.
