#sweet_flag #ショウブ LIGHT:Part Sun, Sun TYPE:Perennial, Water HEIGHT:From 6 inches to 8 feet WIDTH:From 6 to 24 inches FOLIAGE COLOR:Blue/Green, Chartreuse/Gold PROBLEM SOLVERS:Deer Resistant, Groundcover SPECIAL FEATURES:Fragrance, Good for Containers, Low Maintenance ZONES:4-11 Sweet flag will grow easily in medium to wet soil and boggy areas, and does well in anything from full sun to part shade. The soil should never be allowed to dry out; if your plant has scorched leaf tips and withering leaves, it is too dry and needs to be watered. Sweet flag really thrives in water gardens. Plant it in containers and allow enough water to cover the crown of the plant, or place sweet flag in soil at the water's edge. Sweet flag appreciates relief from hot summer sun with either afternoon shade or filtered sun. Because of its slow-growing nature by rhizomes, these plants are easily divided. This also helps to encourage a nice new flush of growth and can be done regularly every few years to rejuvenate them.
