Maintenance Notes:
Plants must remain constantly wet.

The plant can be planted in pots, along the waters edge of a pond, or even in a pond. The crown of the plant should never be covered in water and in fact both of these varieties can thrive in water as shallow as a few inches. The purpose is to keep the bulk of the soil or root mass wet.

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

Cyperus is a grass-like plant. Where temperatures get colder than 30 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 30 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.

Upright Arching. A small, aquatic sedge that resembles its giant cousin,
Egyptian papyrus. Fine-textured, threadlike, terminal bracts and glossy, green umbels that grow to 2-3″ in diameter. The flowers are borne in noticeable brown spikes. A wonderful accent in small pools, ponds, pots,
or tubs, and a stunning choice for fresh or dried arrangements. Pest and disease-free. This plant is also known as Cyperus isocladus.
