Cyperus papyrus

Availability: Out of stock

'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.
