The Alternifolius Cyperus (Umbrella Papyrus Grass) Plant is an ornamental Cyperus grass that produces long-leafed petals, looking quite similar to an umbrella's ribs, that grow atop straight, leafless stems. Tiny yellowy-green flowers bloom on top of the clumps from summer through fall. It is a good choice for containers and will grow well indoors with good filtered light and plenty of humidity. Its favorite use is as an accent specimen in garden areas, especially around water. In fact, our coastal growers enjoy its moderate tolerance to salt, planting it where it enjoys a bit of protection from direct salt spray with fantastic results!
