Papyrus/
Umbrella Grass
Cyperus papyrus or Cyperus involucratus

Description:
King Tut and Baby Tut are water garden friendly grass-like annuals that can be planted in pots or the landscape as well.  The large heads of pendulous blades bear greenish flower spikelets.

It's best used as a centerpiece in large landscape beds or containers.  These plants can be planted in pots, along the waters edge of a pond, or even in a pond. The crown of the plant should never be covered in water and in fact both of these varieties can thrive in water as shallow as a few inches. The purpose is to keep the bulk of the soil or root mass wet.

Baby Tut and King Tut can also be planted in regular garden soil. It is best to keep the soil moist, but once established Baby Tut and King Tut can tolerate some dry soil conditions.
 

Type:
Annual

Light:
Sun to Part Shade

Attributes:
Foliage interest, grassy, heat tolerant, low maintenance, water plant

Plant Care:
An application of fertilizer or compost on garden beds and regular fertilization of plants in pots will help ensure the best possible performance.  Cyperus Papyrus is not hardy enough to survive winters with freezing temperatures and it is not a candidate to overwinter inside. It is a very fast grower and will quickly grow to impressive size when replanted in the spring.  It is best to keep the soil moist, but once they are established, they have proven to be surprisingly tolerant of dry conditions.
 

Planting Instructions: Annuals
