Description

Lizard's Tail Grass - Saururus cernuus

Lizard's tail grass is a perennial plant that is also sometimes referred to as lizard’s tail swamp lilies. This plant can reach up to four feet in height and usually has only a few branches that grow from the hairy stem. The name comes from the plant's small, white flowers, which grow along an arched, spiky stem that protrudes from the leaves like a tail. It is naturally found in marshes and sometimes grows underwater. For a lizard's tail grass plant to flourish, it requires lots of water and sunlight. The Lizard's Tail Grass, or Saururus cernuus, is a perennial plant native to the marshes and wetlands of Florida. The medium-sized leaves are heart or arrow-shaped. The leaves will be 1 1/2 inches wide, and 3-4 inches long.

Lizard's Tail Grass bloom from June to September. This plant produces a bottle brush spike of white flowers.

These flowers later form seed pods, once they reach maturity, making them resemble a lizard's tail which is where the flower gets its name. Indian Gass is a North American parade grass that grows mostly in Eastern and Central United States as well as Canada, more so in the tallgrass parries and the Great Plains. The soils in the areas that favor it are calcareous, sandy loamy soils, clay loam, medium loam and any limestone-based soil. These seed pods are wildlife food in its native habitat, though the plant itself is not known to be a food item.

Lizard's Tail Grass grows into small colonies from underground runners, so it may occasionally need to be divided, which can be done in spring.

While this plant can be put into the ground, as long as it is a very wet area, it is common to find it immersed in a container in home ponds. When planted in a pot for a lake, it can be planted in 6 inches of water. Lizard's Tail Grass is a very fragrant plant, the leaves, roots, and blooms have a pleasant citrus scent. This is an easy-care plant that isn't known to have problems with insects or disease. You'll usually find people using this plant in water or bog gardens. Another frequent use around pond edges, or in ornamental pools. It also grows well in tubs.
