- Detailed Specification
Cyperus alternifolius is a dual-purpose perennial, which can be grown at the edge of a pond, in water up to 15cm deep, or in bog gardens or damp borders. In late summer, attractive tall, thin, arching, rich green leaves up to 1.5m height, erupt from the base with contrasting reddish-brown spikelets. If growing in water, restrict its spread by keeping it in a basket. The evergreen, arching leaves provide a soft mound of foliage which will be a pleasure to look upon through the winter months when most other plants have died back. Also available as a 3L plant.
