Description

The Lizard's Tail, Saururus cernuus, is an upright, hairy perennial, growing to 4 ft. in height.

This common lily-of-the-valley relative has slender, nodding, solitary spikes of tiny, white flowers occurring opposite a leaf. The leaves are lance-shaped to nearly triangular with a cordate base. This plant occurs in marshes and stream margins throughout the southeast.

Lizard's Tail is a relatively unusual woodland or marsh perennial with an upright, hairy appearance. The common name for Lizard's Tail is derived from this unique flower cluster.

The lizard's Tail, Saururus cernuus, is a deciduous perennial that grows from a basal rosette of lance-shaped to almost triangular leaves (to 6 in. long). The leaves are usually slightly hairy below, especially along the margins. The slender stem (1 to 6 ft.) bears an upright cluster of tiny white flowers at its tip. The flowers are tiny though numerous, white with a button-like base and drooping tip. Usually occur from late spring to early summer, but flowering can continue sporadically throughout the warm months. These plants are native to wet, shaded areas from Quebec and Massachusetts west to Iowa and south to Florida and Texas.

The inconspicuous spikes of tiny white flowers appear in late spring or early summer opposite a leaf.

The common names, "lizard's tail" and "swamp lily," are most likely the result of the lizard-like appearance and the tall, grass-like leaves. The Latin epithet combines sources (lizard) and our (Tail).
