Gift wrapping Options available
Cyperus papyrus 'Nile Queen'
A medium form of Giant Papyrus, growing up to 4 feet tall. Adapts well to growing in or out of water. Handles lower light situations better than Giant Papyrus. Needs a lot of water.
The root ball can be submerged but it isn't necessary. If the plant is put into a pot I would suggest plugging the hole or holes in the bottom of the pot to keep as much water as possible in the pot
Dwarf Papyrus also be planted in regular garden soil. It is best to keep the soil moist, but once established Dwarf Papyrus can tolerate some dry soil conditions.
Dwarf Papyrus is an evergreen or neutral grass. Where temperatures get colder than 25 degrees F, the plants should be treated as annuals. Once the grass turns brown it can either be removed immediately or removed in the spring. It should not be expected to live through the winter and begin growing again in the spring.
In areas where winter temperatures remain above 25 degrees it should be considered a perennial and the following information should be useful.
Evergreen or neutral grasses are usually plants that look like grasses but aren't actually classified as grasses, they are generally called grass-like plants.
Divide evergreen or neutral grasses and grass-like plants in spring only.
Evergreen grasses don't ever go dormant. Dividing plants wounds them to some degree. For evergreen grasses this wounding will really affect their ability to live through the winter.
Indoors the plant can be grown in a sunny window setting in a saucer of water.
