Acorus gramineus 'Ogon'

Slender Sweet Flag

£6.99

Acorus gramineus 'Ogon' is a compact, semi-evergreen grass with tall, sword shaped leaves which are vibrant bold creamy yellow with rich green variegated stripes. This showy foliage is excellent for brightening up darker areas or surrounding a water feature where soil is constantly wet.

Cut back in autumn once leaves have faded. Generally pest and disease free. 

Buying Bamboo & Grasses from Jacksons Nurseries

At Jacksons Nurseries we sell the majority of our stock all year round. Our stock is for the most part grown outdoors making it far hardier than those grown under glass and/or only sold ‘In Season’. With Bamboo and Grasses the leaves can differ in quality dependent on the time of the year and whether they are in their growth phase. We protect less hardy species during the winter but other plants grown out doors may have some wind damage. This is in no way detrimental to the plant and will grow out naturally in spring. 

 
Please Note: Our specimen bamboos in 20 litre pots and above can grow up to around 3-4m while here on the nursery. Due to domestic courier weight restrictions delivery is only possible via a freight courier on a pallet. Unfortunately we are restricted to a maximum consignment height of 2m, this has to include the height of the pallet and the height of the pot so we have to cut the plants accordingly. Cutting the plants down with not harm their growth. As most of the foliage is usually towards the top half of the plant they can look quite sparse however eventually you will be left with a far denser bushier plant.

Ornamental grasses can provide calming, delicate accompaniments to colourful flowering plants, or they can be the focus of design instead. There are types available for every garden setup, soil type and position, and will provide colour, coverage, contrast and structure wherever they are planted.

 

Planting and Conditions

Grasses from colder climates such as Deschampsia, Festuca, Helctotrichon and Stipa grow in late winter and flower before mid-summer. To get the best establishment, they should be planted in the autumn.

Grasses from warmer climates such as Miscanthus, Panicum, Pennisetum and Spartina grow in late spring, flower after mid-summer and are best cut back in late winter. Plan them in late spring, and they will be best established.

Grasses also make good container specimens, and will prosper in loamy soil.

Ideally, the planting areas for grasses should be prepared in the autumn months. Till the soil deeply, and work in ample organic matter. Ornamental grasses do not require large amounts of fertiliser.

 

Aftercare and Pruning

The foliage on deciduous grasses can be left until February. They turn brown rather than lose their leaves, and so should be pruned to ground level later in the season. The severity of pruning required can vary from variety to variety, so care should be taken so that you don’t harm the plant.

Evergreen grasses can be trimmed in spring. Remove brown tips and cut back dead leaves that usually collect around the base of the plant.

Care for your grasses by using mulch and watering them regularly. Otherwise, they are a fairy low maintenance addition to the garden.

 

Potential Issues

Nothing really bothers most ornamental grasses. Rabbits and voles may occasionally be an issue, but they can easily be controlled using fencing and, if needs must, animal repellents.
