Miniature Papyrus Overview

Cyperus prolifer is an attractive, medium-sized member of the sedge family, suitable for waterside planting. Although much smaller, the plant bears a superficial resemblance to papyrus, hence the common name. It is frequently labelled as Cyperus papyrus 'nanus' but this name has no standing and should be avoided.
