Saururus cernuus - lizard's tail - Commonly called Lizard’s tail or water-dragon, is a rhizomatous, deciduous, marginal aquatic perennial that typically grows to 2-4’ tall in the wild. In cultivation in water gardens, it more typically grows 12-24” tall. Features heart-shaped leaves (3-6” long) on erect, branching, somewhat zig-zag stems and tiny fragrant white flowers packed into slender, tapered, spike-like racemes (4-12” long) that droop at the tips. Blooms June to September. The flowers give way to small green warty fruits. The nodding flower/fruit spikes purportedly resemble lizards’ tails, hence the common name. The flowers, leaves and roots of this plant have a generally pleasant citrus aroma. Family: Saururaceae
