Dear Tony- et al;
Yes yes yes, but I don't think I am hallucinating.
I got a plant many years ago from a German friend that was smaller
then the A.g. 'Pusillus Aureus' that I still grow. It never grew any larger
than 1 inch in height. It was a typical Acorus g. in all aspects except
incredibly tiny. I grew it in the open garden for years -finding it every
few months, but it was totally undemanding and prospered. I think I even
gave divisions around.
I physically lost it in my garden move, but I do not doubt it's
I do grow a half dozen or so other various Acorus cvs. variegated
golden leaved various sizes etc. I know the difference.
Obviously this was a rarer item than I assumed at the time.
So it goes. best Jim W.
