Acorus gramineus

The nomenclature seems confused; A.g. pusillus/pussillius/ minimus and Aureus. Whichever, I'd like to grow a modest amount of both the green and golden varieties of the dwarf kind. Extensive searching hasn't turned up seeds, so I'm guessing that the preferred means of propagation is division of rhizomes. Anyone have info on good cheap sources, techniques, rapidity of spread and division. I've already ordered two from Arrowhead, but I'll be wanting to buy some to establish a "mother" patch, I guess.
Thanks, Jeremy

RE: Acorus gramineus

Your Local Garden Center should have a few different ones in stock on a regular basis.
Don't try to propagate them now as we are approaching the cooler time of the year.
I'd wait until about May in your zone.
