Lizard's Tail (Saururus cernuus) is a native perennial herb found in wetlands and along the banks of streams and ponds in eastern North America. It prefers to grow in moist to wet soils with a neutral to slightly acidic pH level. Lizard's Tail can grow in full sun to partial shade and is commonly found in marshy areas, swamps, and along riverbanks. This plant requires consistent moisture and can tolerate water depths up to 1.5 feet. It typically grows to be 2-4 feet tall and produces elongated white flower spikes that resemble the tail of a lizard, hence its name. Lizard's Tail is a valuable plant for wildlife, as it provides shelter and food for many species of birds and insects.
