An exotic summertime addition to ponds or boggy areas of the garden, papyrus grows quickly from four to eight feet tall.
Available in storeClose
'King Tut' Papyrus is one of those summertime novelty plants that often captures the fancy of gardeners looking for something fast-growing and frankly, rather flashy. Capable of growing to six feet tall, this water-loving grass sends up umbrella-like spikelets that can measure up to 12 inches across. The greenish-brown heads resemble fireworks bursts without the color, and add a tropical feel when planted along ponds or in sunny but wet areas of the garden. Alas, this is a tender perennial, so most Pacific NW gardeners treat 'King Tut' Papyrus as an annual.
