Go Back Egyptian Papyrus

Cyperus papyrus

Plant Type: Water Gardening

Dwarf Papyrus make excellent deck and patio accents when planted in tubs or kettles and set in full sun to partial shade. They have very high moisture needs, so be sure to keep the appropriate amount of water in the pot. Dwarf Papyrus prefers a water depth of 1 to 4 inches over their crowns. They can be invasive if planted directly at the pond edge; they are controllable by placing them in 2-gallon containers before placing them in the water.
When a stem bends over and touches the water, it will create new plantlets. To speed up this process, cut off flower heads and float them upside down in water.
