Details

Cyperus papyrus 'Little Prince' is a vigorous, grass-like foliage plant with huge umbels looking vaguely like giant onion flowers. Totally versatile as it can go in sun or shade, containers, and landscape plantings including water gardens! Egyptian Papyrus adds graceful, dramatic height to any water feature, landscape or large container. Can even be planted directly in a pond, however, the crown of the plant should never be covered in water.
