A British native species which is a really impressive plant, with very tall, strong, slender, arching foliage and attractive brown seed heads in late summer. It spreads by sturdy underground stems but can be contained in a pot.

We recommend starting your Cyperus longus off in a pot of 2 - 3 litres capacity. Read more on how to pot and care for your plant here.
