Egyptian Paper Reed (Cyperus Papyrus)

There’s a simple reason the Egyptian Paper Reed is popular in floral arrangements; they’re delicate and beautiful. This South African via Kauai native is a great addition to any landscaping or water feature.

Where They Do Well:

The Egyptian Paper Reed is rare, in that it can grow in full sunlight or full shade. It does require ample water, but can do quite well in pots or rich, moist soil. We’ll make sure that it’s in a position to receive the best nutrition and water possible.


This plant requires ample water and some thinning out once overgrown. Aside from that, it takes very little care and can be enjoyed with ease.
