Lizard's Tail Plant 25 Plants $79.99 Description

Lizard's Tail

 Lizards Tail, also known botanically as Saururus cernuus, is a tall, hairy deciduous perennial, also called the swamp lily.

Native to wet, shaded areas from Canada to the United States, Lizards Tail plants can be seen in the wild along marshes and streams. This plant bears a unique flower cluster that resembles a lizard's Tail. A relative to the Lily of the Valley, this plant bears slender, drooping, single spikes of tiny, white flowers. Lizard Tail leaves are lance-shaped and triangular that can grow to 6 inches long. This plant also bears stems that can reach up to four feet high. A beautiful swamp lily found in many southeastern regions of the U.S., the standard Lizard Tail is easy to grow and maintain.

Lizards tail care and maintenance

Lizard's Tail is excellent if you have a boggy area or small pond that receives part shade in your home garden. This plant requires very little attention once established. Lizards Tail spreads by rhizomes, and its roots can be divided for other plantings. Lizard Tal must receive water and partial sun to thrive during the spring and summer, and no special care is needed over the winter months. Plant after frost season ends to ensure that your Lizards Tail plants will flourish.


 Lizards Tail is not susceptible to bugs or disease; however, it should not be consumed in mass quantity by humans or animals. Avoid planting it where animals forage, especially beavers, who love to eat this plant. This plant can modify its leaves which draws in pollinators, turning the top few leaves closest to its flowers to appear. This leaf-morphing helps attract twice as many pollinators so the Lizards Tail plant can replicate itself faster. If you require a hardy water plant that enjoys plenty of moisture and bears unique flowers, then growing Lizard's Tail may be just what you seek for your landscape. Excellent for water gardens and habitats that support aquatic wildlife, Lizards Tail will bring your garden many years of natural wonderment and beauty.
