A couple of the new live plants I recently bought included one I had never heard of that PetSmart had labelled as "acorus." When I searched for a few different types of acorus, none of it looked like my plant. Could a plant expert help?

The plant I have has what looks like a tap root for it's primary root system. It has long, stiff, straight grass-like blades that are bi-colored (half a whitish pastel green and half a medium-light green). It is not particularly bushy (at this time) and is about 15 inches tall.

Any ideas?

it is a bog plant. it will die off in a submerged environment. Nice looking--just not really for an aquarium.
