Trying to ID a plant -- noted a possible duplication (or perhaps not). Acorus granineum 'Pusillus Minimus Aureus' and Acorus granineum 'Minimus Aureus' ??

Interesting, two separate cultivars?

And now to further confuse... I found the plant tag, which states mine is Acorus gramineus 'Pusilus Aurea' - which makes 3 possibilities. I suspect they are all one and the same, but will wait to hear from one of the moderators. The common name on the tag is Miniature Sweet Flag with a 4" height.
