Description

Acorus gramineus is a perennial plant that grows to a height of 0.3m with a spread of 0.3m, typically growing in wetlands and shallow water. It has erect flowering stems with narrow and erect leaves forming dense clumps. The green flower spathe is inconspicuous.

Native to Japan, Korea, and eastern Asia, Acorus gramineus has traditionally been used in China as a popular luckcharm, elixier, hallucinogen and medicine. Also to treat epilepsy, stroke, asthma, insomnia and chronic bronchitis by removing phlegm.

Acorus gramineus has been found to be a pleasantly suitable substitute for Acorus calamus with a more agreeable flavour and better stimulant effect.
