Umbrella Grass. Formerly known as Cyperus alternifolia. 

  • Approximate height: 75 - 90cm (30 - 36 inches)
  • Recommended water depth over crown of plant: 10 - 20cm (4 - 8 inches)
  • Flowering time: July onwards
  • Flower colour: Green seed heads, which turn brown as they mature
  • Supplied bare root

This excellent specimen plant will grace any pond with its tall, sturdy stems crowned with attractive sprays of umbrella-like leaves and delicate feathery seeds. It is by far the most ornamental member of the Cyperus family. It is very slightly tender so the crown of the plant should remain below the water line during winter to protect it from ice damage.

We recommend starting your Cyperus involucratus off in a pot of 1 litre capacity. Read more on how to pot and care for your plant here.
