Lizard’s Tail – A Lovely, Water-Loving Plant

Saururus Cernuus is a unique and beautiful aquatic plant native to the wetlands and swamps of North America, ranging from the southern United States to northern South America. This plant is hardy in USDA growing zones 4 to 9, requiring partial to full sun exposure to thrive.

Lizard's Tail is a perennial herb, sometimes as Swamp Lily, Water Dragon, or American Swamp Lily.

Lizard's Tail Adds Beautiful Color and Texture to Your Water Garden

Saururus Cernuus prefers to be grown in wet soil conditions, consistently moist but not soggy. The plant can tolerate a vast range of soil types and is not picky about soil quality. It is ideal if you plant it on the banks of a pond, rain garden, or water garden. It's also beautiful in a sunny clearing near a river or stream.

Lizard's Tail has a distinctive appearance, with dark green, heart-shaped leaves that grow on long stems. The stems then produce spikes of small, nodding white flowers that bloom in the summer and early fall. These flowers have a subtle, sweet fragrance that some gardeners describe as refreshing, light, sassafras fragrance.

Lizard's Tail Adds to a Healthier Local Habitat

The Lizard's Tail plant adds diversity to the ecosystem by providing valuable habitats for aquatic wildlife, such as frogs, insects, and birds. The plant also helps to prevent soil erosion in wetland areas and can play a role in water purification by removing pollutants from the water.
