Product Overview

Lizard's Tail (Saururus cernuus)

The bright green heart shaped foliage is accented with 4"-6" long spikes of fragrant white flowers in early summer. The shape and size of the blooms are reminicient of a lizard's tail (we don't know who tough of that, but it really does if you are an expert in lizard anatomy, and it is a lot more attractive than is sounds!). Lizard's Tail is shade tolerant, easy to grow and winters well. Multiplies by underground runners. US native.

Hardiness Zone: 4-11
Planting Container: We recommend a 2 gallon solid planting container or a medium planting bag.
Light Requirements: full sun to part shade
Height: 12" to 36" - Spread: Running spread
Water Depth: Moist to 6" below water surface (Maximum water depth is for mature bog plants)

For planting instructions see our: Planting Instructions for Bog Plants Page.

    pond plants

    Posted by jeff lieske on Apr 29th 2021

    All the plants i ordered including the lizards tale arrived in great shape and healthy looking. Hopefully they`ll start growing only been in the pond for a few days. I think i have found my new place to purchase pond plants,these seemed bigger than from some of the other places. I really like the look of the lizards tale waiting to see how it does in my bog garden and may get more.

    I was very pleased when I received my delivery. All the plants were packed thoughtfully, healthy and a good size. If comparison to other on-line suppliers I've tried in the past, Lily Blooms was a 100% positive experience. Thank you!

    Got 2 separate plants in one pot: one is bigger than expected and the other half its size. Arrived healthy and we'll packed.
