Cyperus prolifer ‘Cleopatra’ is a vigorous, grass-like foliage plant with umbels that radiate stiffly from the center, looking like a green starburst. Totally versatile as it can go in sun or partial shade, containers, and landscape plantings including water gardens! Can even be planted directly in a pond, however, the crown of the plant should never be covered in water. This Umbrella Plant makes an exotic, tropical centerpiece in containers or an eye-catching focal point in the garden. Even though it is considered a water plant, it can take drying out in regular garden plantings and is very heat tolerant.
