  • Umberella plant - Cyperus involucratus (AGM) is a sedge with leaf bracts in a spoke arrangement with seedheads which turn brown
  • Height 60 - 90cm (24" - 36") Seeds August - October
  • Plant Cyperus involucratus with 5cm (2") of water over the top of the basket in a sunny or shaded pond. Suitable for shelf 1

Take cuttings as a protection against a bad winter. Place the seed heads in water in July/August and allow them to root before potting them up.

The structural form of Cyperus involucratus stands up well throughout early winter. Do not cut Cyperus involucratus down in Autumn - leave that job until new shoots appear in late Spring and then remove the tatty stems.
