Product Description

Effortless Summertime Shade

Sprays of rich green foliage make the grass-like papyrus plant a perfect pick for warm environments. Its svelte spindles radiate like an umbrella, making its nickname "umbrella plant" particularly apt!

Papyrus Plants are heat tolerant with no dead heading necessary and love water - ideal for the new gardener - and these upright oxygenators thrive in ponds, water gardens, and moist containers. The best part? They can’t be over watered as they require constant moisture at the roots.

And since it's designed for shade, it's a super-fast grower and will mature to an impressive size when replanted in the spring. It's well-suited to full sun, partial sun and partial shade on your patio, topping out at 3 to 5 feet tall.

Plus, it’s no problem if you don’t have a green thumb – your pond or shallow water areas are great for taking care of the Papyrus Plant. Its voluminous leaf-like structures, which are actually involucral bracts, can be richly green or reddish brown for an autumnal touch that’s ultra-lush.

Boasting a well-developed root system that securely anchors your plant in wet soil, the Papyrus Plant is an effortless pick. It’s easy to maintain, and though it does not survive freezing temperatures, it’s considered both an annual and half-hardy perennial that thrives in moist environments.

Fast-growing, lush and versatile. Order your Papyrus Plants now!
