Umbrella Palm (Cyperus Alternifolius) Shallow water plant
Umbrella Palm (Cyperus Alternifolius) is a marginal, shallow water plant. An attractive, clump forming plant with rushy green arching leaves. Strong, upright stems are topped with umbrella like spokes. Forms an interesting seed head that turns dark brown in autumn.
Can also be grown as a houseplant.
Forms clumps up to 60cm (24in) high
Spread 60cm (24 in).
If planted deeply enough it should survive the average winter but we recommend protecting the crown in winter.
Planting depth 0-10cm (0-5in)
We would recommend a planting basket of at least 11cm across for one plant or, for more impact, plant several of the same variety in a larger basket.
Product Code: M0230
We ship all marginal water plants bare root, this means that we wash the soil off before packing plants. During the summer months we may need to trim some of the foliage back for shipping.
