Lizard's tail, also known as breast weed, needs full or partial shade to thrive and does best in wet or moist soil.
These plants are aquatic and need lots of water, so it's best to plant them near a lake or river.
Lizard's tail got its name from the long flowers that are shaped like fingers. The flowers appear in the summer and the crushed foliage smells like sassafras. The plant makes a great groundcover for all types of soils, but can also be grown in containers or near shallow water. Lizard's tails can colonize quickly and cover large areas, and withstand saturated soil up to 4 inches.
This plant is used for ornamental purposes, so if you have a water garden, this plant makes a great addition. Wood ducks favor the plant, so you can attract these animals to your pond or lake if you grow lizard's tail. Lizard's tail is also deer resistant, so if you have deer in your area, you won't have to worry about keeping the plant safe. This plant is also used for medicinal purposes and is beneficial for treating inflammation in the breasts and other areas of the body. The young leaves and shoots provide sheep and cattle forage. When these animals overeat lizard's tail, the plant can become toxic.
Lizard's tail grows to be about 3 feet tall. It stands straight or semi-straight but sometimes leans on nearby plants for support. The stems are slender and green and feature soft white hairs. The leaves of the plant are rarely affected by pests and insects. While the plant can tolerate some sun, too much sunlight will turn the leaves from green to yellow. Lizard's tail thrives well in hardiness zones 3 through 9 and is a herbaceous perennial that is delicate and aesthetically pleasing.
