Acorus calamus

Showy, decorative plant that looks somewhat like Iris but its leaves are more graceful and brighter green. Its sometimes difficult-to-notice flowers are interesting "finger-like" clubs that are borne half-way up the leaf. Sweetflag derives its name from the fact that when any part of the plant is crushed or bruised it releases a distinct, sweet fragrance. Because of this it was stewed for herbs, and potpourri in colonial times. Native Americans used it medicinally in the past as well.

Native to North America.
