Saururus from the Greek sauros (lizard) and oura (tail) cernuus, aptly named lizard's tail as you can see in the image grows in shallow water along ditches, ponds, swamps, and streams. If given its preferred growing conditions will become an upright growing aquatic to approximately 1.2m. A long flower season from April through to August, can be enjoyed during which the slender, nodding, spikes of tiny, white flowers also produce a scent which wafts in the air when by the pool.

Available as a 1L plant.
