Description: Sweet Flag is a strongly aromatic plant with sword shaped leaves. It grows in marshland and along riverbanks in North America, Asia and Europe. The roots are harvested in spring and late autumn, washed and, after removing the hair-roots, dried at a low temperature before being ground to a powder. Sweet Flag will last longer if kept in the fridge.

Ethnobotanical History: Sweet Flag is used as a herbal remedy by Native American tribes in small doses to fight pain and fatigue, as well as for oral hygiene. In large doses it may have been used as a visionary aid. The Cree claim to take Sweet flag enables them to travel great distances without touching the ground.

Cultivation: Plant in a wet-spot such as under outside tap or pond edge.

Shipping Restrictions: We do not ship clones or live plants outside New Zealand.plants .
