Go Back King Tut Grass

Egyptian Papyrus
Deer Resistant Icon

Plant Type: Annuals

The plant 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. The root ball can be submerged but it isn't necessary. If the plant is put into a pot, plug the hole or holes in the bottom of the pot to keep as much water as possible in the pot.

Growing & Maintenance Tips:

King Tut is an evergreen or neutral grass. Where temperatures get colder than 35 degrees F, the plants should be treated as annuals. Once the grass turns brown it can either be removed immediately or removed in the spring. It should not be expected to live through the winter and begin growing again in the spring.
