(='Minimus Aureus') Sweet Flag is not a true grass, but plants have a distinctive, grassy appearance. This selection forms a very low mound of narrow golden sword-shaped leaves, beautiful in a moist rock garden or beside a pool or stream. Flowers are green and insignificant. Spreads very slowly. Foliage remains evergreen in mild regions. Clumps may be divided in early spring, once the center begins to thin out. Rare and choice.
