Acorus calamus

calamus

plant overview
sweet and semi-aquatic calamus

Calamus, more commonly known as Sweet Flag, is a semi-aquatic plant found alongside ponds and streams. Other common names in use for this plant, such as Sweet Rush and Cinnamon Sedge, refer to the sweet aroma of the dried root and its use in flavoring beverages. Another nickname, German ginger, refers to the fact that the powdered root is an ingredient in some European wines and aperitifs. It is also used as a substitute for ground cinnamon, nutmeg and, of course, ginger.

Clicking "learn more" next to each variety will take you to individual product pages for details.
