Giant Papyrus (Cyperus Giganteus)

Plant Description

Giant Papyrus, also known as Egyptian Papyrus, is a tall, exotic, green plant with strong, fluffy yellow-green mop heads on bold, upright foliage. Giant Papyrus grows to 6 feet tall or taller and can be grown in water or moist soil in full sun to part shade. Giant Papyrus really makes a statement in your water garden or flower bed by adding texture and interest!

Width       Spreads to 18 - 24 inches wide

Sunlight Requirements     Full sun to part shade

Moisture Requirements     Moist soil to up to 12 inches of water above the roots

Zone     Hardy in zones 8 - 12

Planting Instructions  

Plant your Giant Papyrus in moist soil in your terrestrial garden or with up to 12 inches above the roots in your pond or container garden. Plant in full sun to part shade. Fertilize once each month throughout the growing season with a slow release fertilizer like Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs.

Giant Papyrus grows quite tall. Protect your container gardens from tipping over by placing rocks in the bottom of your planting containers (not on top of the soil), to help weigh the containers down in case of high wind. Also, when planting your Giant Papyrus in the terrestrial garden, consider plant placement to protect from high winds.

*Extra Large Fabric Planting Containers are an excellent choice for Giant Papyrus as well as other large, marginal plants for the pond!
