Cyperus King Tut


King Tut

This dwarf tender perennial sedge is a water-marginal that grows in a grass-like clump of leafless, triangular, green stems to 2-3 feet tall. Each stem is topped by a showy umbellate inflorescence of 100+ threadlike rays with greenish-brown flower spikes. Flowers give way to brown, nut-like fruits. This sedge is grown as an annual in rich, consistently moist soils or in standing water or in large containers. Potted plants may be overwintered indoors. Best grown in part shade. May be grown in containers at the margins of water gardens, pools or ponds. Grows well in both standing water and in boggy soils When overwintering, set the container in a saucer filled with water, and place the container and saucer near a bright sunny window in a preferably cool (60-65 degree F) area. Plants may be grown as annuals.
