(Moore's Crinum, Natal Lily)

Large lily flowers of white to pink dazzle the eye in spring and summer over the dark green, strappy foliage of the Natal lily. Native to the moist soils of eastern South Africa, it is an evergreen perennial that grows from large bulbs that have an elongated neck.

The fleshy, think and long, dark green leaves are upright from the bulb and flop over with their length. Sometimes the edges are attractively wavy. In late spring to early summer, leafless stalks rise and bear five to ten plump flower...

(Papyrus, Wild Spike Cyperus)

A lovely dwarf version of papyrus, ‘Wild Spike’ offers unique tropical looks indoors or out. This hybrid papyrus straddles the line between a moisture-loving grass and a tropical foliage plant. It is composed of many dark green, leafless stems topped in a spoke-like whorl of long pendulous bracts similar to ribs of an umbrella. With ‘Wild Spike’ these are narrower giving it a fine-textured appearance. Small pale yellow to brown flowers are held just above the bracts in summer. These are not particularly...

(Alternate Papyrus, Umbrella Papyrus, Umbrella Plant)

The bold look of umbrella plant make it a favorite garden plant for moist containers and subtropical pondside gardens. This upright, evergreen, grass-like perennial is native to Madagascar. It spreads steadily by underground rhizomes to form substantial clumps over time, in fact in some areas it has escaped from garden cultivation and is considered invasive.

The chief selling point of this papyrus is its unique, striking foliage. It bears tall, dark green leafless stems topped with a spoke-like...

(Flatsedge, Hardy Papyrus)

Though some argue flat sedge looks a bit like nut sedge on steroids, this fast-growing sedge can make a pleasing garden statement if planted in a moist container or enclosed garden space among colorful garden flowers. Native populations are found in southeastern Europe, along the Caucasus Mountains and down into Syria, Israel and Pakistan. Flat sedge grows best in moist soils but will tolerate those with average moisture.

The bright green, grassy foliage of hardy papyrus has a distinct triangular...

(Dwarf Papyrus)

This is an aquatic or emergent tender perennial plant native to most of the tropical and subtropical regions of the world, including the southeastern United States.

A true papyrus, it has green, three-angled, soft, leafless stems which arise from brown, scaly rhizomes (underground, lateral stems). The leaves are generally absent, but a few papery leaf sheaths occur at the base of the stems that are green tinged with red or purple. The summer flowers appear in umbrella-like groups atop thin stems...
