Marsh Betony stachys palustris

Dwarf Papyrus  Cyperus haspens percamentus  only grows 18 to 24 inches tall.

Because of its smaller size it is much more popular.

The Dwarf variety does not "weep" while in bloom because the shorter stems are well able to hold the foliage up.

It is hardy zone 8 or higher. Will winter in the home in lesser zones

Full sun or shade.  Likes moving water  Place the pot so that it is even with the top of the water but no more than 4 inches deep.

This plant can be potted, or the rooted ends tucked into the rocks of a streambed or water fall.

Egyptian Papyrus  Cyperus papyrus

Egyptian Papyrus  Cyperus papyrus

Egyptian Papyrus  Cyperus papyrus  grows 8’ tall so it needs a large pond to look like it “belongs”. The stems are stiff and triangular shaped. At the top of these stems grows a “tuft” of needle like foliage that kind of resembles a broom. When they are in bloom the stems actually weep in a graceful way.

This plant can be potted, or the rooted ends tucked into the rocks of a streambed or water fall.

Hardy zone 8 or higher.

Will winter in the home in lesser zones

NOTE: This plant is commonly used to make paper!

This is a newer plant that is often referred to as the dwarf giant papyrus. It is ideal for those who love the Egyptian papyrus but don't have a large pond to accommodate a larger plant.

It has "tufts" just like the Egyptian Papyrus and the dwarf papyrus but with more compact growth.

The dwarf giant papyrus grows 2-1/2 to 3-1/2 ' tall.

Thrives in full sun to shade making a more versatile plant.

Keep the pot so that the water is no more than 4 inches over the top of the pot.

Hardy zone 9 or higher. Will winter in the home in lesser zones
