Product Overview

Compact Giant Papyrus (Cyperus percamenthus)

Compact Giant Papyrus is a very popular plant with water gardeners. An excellent marginal plant, it looks like Egyptian Papyrus, but is much shorter and compact, making it easier to maintain in smaller water features. The mop-like heads grow 10" to 12" across and the plant stands 30" to 36" tall. The sturdy stems help protect this plant from wind damage. Also known as Dwarf Giant Papyrus, not to be confused with dwarf papyrus (Cyperus haspan) or giant papyrus (Cyperus giganteus)! Easy to winter over as a houseplant in colder regions.

Hardiness Zone: 9-11
Planting Container: We recommend a 2 gallon solid planting container or a medium planting bag.
Light Requirements: full sun to part shade
Height: 30" to 36" - Spread: 12" to 24" Wide
Water Depth: Moist soil or water up to 4" deep (Maximum water depth is for mature bog plants)

    Broken but growing back

    Posted by Melissa Kyzar on Jun 5th 2019

    The papyrus specimen received was damaged in the box because of its height and I guess it was bent too far to fit but it is slowly growing back.
