Papyrus is ornamental grass that adds greenery and drama to a space. The tall bright green stalks are topped with clusters of green flowers that bloom during the summer. The unique flowers look like bursts of greenery and give this annual plenty of texture and a monochrome look. Also known as Cyperus papyrus, this plant is grown for its frilly foliage.
This upright thriller is commonly found in containers or landscapes. Papyrus is a fast grower that thrives in damp conditions, making it an excellent plant to include in naturally wet areas or near a water feature. As a native of tropical and subtropical regions of Africa, this plant does well in warm conditions.
