Saururus cernuus - Lizard’s Tail
The nodding white spikes of this interesting water plant resemble a Lizard’s Tail and, along with the leaves and roots, have a pleasant fragrance of citrus. It can be grown in the boggy soil of the edge of a pond, or in a container in a water garden under up to 6” of water. Lizard's Tail is a favorite food of turtles, which eat the leaves and bees will visit the flowers for nectar. This plant will certainly add a point of interest to your pond or garden as well as provide shelter for many different aquatic creatures.
