Description
The heart-shaped, dark green foliage of Saururus cernuus creates a most attractive backdrop for the white flower spikes in summer. The fragrant flower spikes droop demurely at the tips giving this hardy perennial its common name of Lizard’s Tail. Saururus cernuus makes an excellent marginal aquatic or bog garden plant. Height and spread: 60cm (24"). Planting depth: Zones 1, 2 & 3 to 20cm (8") below water level.

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

More Info
Saururus requires virtually no maintenance. Cut back the old foliage to just above water level in autumn to maintain a tidy appearance.
