Quick Overview

Acorus Calamus (sweet flag) live plant is an aquatic reed-like plant.
The scented leaves and more strongly scented rhizomes have traditionally been used medicinally and to make fragrances, and the dried and powdered rhizome has been used as a substitute for ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Chewing the rootstock of the plant can cause visual hallucinations, possibly due to the presence of alpha-asarone or beta-asarone. Calamus is also one of the ingredients in Absinthe.
Easy to care for in rich muddy soil. It likes to be standing in water ideally. We have grown it in ponds, streams and even buckets in the garden!
