Cyperus papyrus 'King Tut®'

Egyptian Papyrus

Possibly the coolest container plant of all time. Even the ancient Egyptians thought so! Huge green pom poms tower over everything in summer until frost. ‘'King Tut®'’is a large, non-hardy grass-like plant that adds impressive architectural interest and grace to every spot we've tried it. Great in large landscape beds, along the water's edge or in containers. The giant green flower spikelets (pom poms) can measure more than 1' across!

Also makes a good cut flower...if you have a vase that accomodates 6' (yes, feet) tall flowers :)
