Acorus Ogon plants for Sale Online
A beautiful accent plant for a moist rock garden or beside a pool or stream, this will even grow in shallow standing water. Acorus Ogon Plants can be utilized very well as an accent plant to mixed perennial beds and evergreen. Sometimes called Golden Variegated Sweet Flag.
Acorus Ogon is a dense, spreading sedge (grass) growing to 12 inches tall and is grown for its foliage effect. Features grass-like, stiff leaves (1/2" wide to 12" long) which are dark green in the center with clean white borders. The moderate spreading habit of this sedge (most sedges are clump-forming) facilitates covering woodland areas as a groundcover. Brownish flowers in late spring are insignificant. This sedge is evergreen in the South, maintaining a good appearance in both summer and winter, but is not evergreen in northern areas, although some foliage color will persist through the winter, but it will need cut back in the spring. Acorus Ogon will brighten a shady area. Adds soothing movement to the garden when foliage dances in the breeze.
We suggest when planting your newly purchased Acorus Ogon plants that you dig a hole twice as wide as the root system but not deeper. Depending on the quality of your existing soil you may need to add a locally sourced compost or topsoil to the back-fill soil. We do not recommend using straight topsoil or compost as a back-fill soil because more times than not these products will retain entirely to much moisture and will cause the root system to rot. Adding compost or topsoil will help the young feeder roots to spread through the loose, nutrient rich soil, much easier than if you used solely the existing soil which more times than not will be hard and compacted. The most common cause of plant death after transplanting is planting the new plant to deep. That is why we do not recommend planting in a hole any deeper than the soil line of the plant in the pot. A good rule is that you should still be able to see the soil the plant was grown in after back-filling the hole. Bio-tone starter fertilizer is a great starter fertilizer that provides plants with mycorrhizae fungus. It is a naturally occurring beneficial fungus that colonizes on the new growing roots of plants. It creates a barrier between the roots of the plant and fungus and pathogens that can cause root rot. We love this product and use it on all plants we install in our own gardens. Bio-tone is a gardener’s best friend and can help guarantee your success.
