Exotic-looking, fantastic bold form with pendulous leaves atop upright stems. This fast grower makes an impressive centerpiece in the container garden and prefers the moist conditions of water gardens and containers without drainage holes. Grows just 2-3′ high and wide. Papyrus need little extra care to thrive provided it is kept moist. Mulching in zone 8 can help protect the tender roots but the foliage will likely die back in winter.
