Beautiful creamy variegated arching foliage on this evergreen perennial for good to wet soil in at least some shade. Really tough but best out of cold winds. 25cm.

Tough evergreen plants like Acorus gramineus 'Variegatus' often get lebelled with "useful" which people take to mean boring, but this is useful but not boring!  Perhaps underplanted now, but they were popular in the 1990s particularly in Japanese gardens.
