King Tut dwarf Egyptian papyrus (Cyperus papyrus) adds a touch of the tropics—and Dr. Seuss-like fun—to any garden. Grow it in a pot, planting bed, water garden or stream-side planting. It loves moisture, but take care not to submerge the crown or growing point. Keep it in water just a few inches deep. Papyrus grows quickly, and the more moisture that’s available, the faster it grows. Plants reach 18 to 30 inches tall and 24 to 36 inches wide. Hardy in Zones 9-11. In cold zones, overwinter plants in pots indoors through winter.
