King Tut Papyrus (Cyperus percamenthus)
King Tut 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. Easy to winter over as a houseplant in colder regions.
