King Tut (Cyperus papyrus)

King Tut (Cyperus papyrus)

King Tut (Cyperus papyrus) has been another great plant for us in Southwest Florida. King Tut is herbaceous perennial and a native to Africa. In the wild it grows in full sun, in flooded swamps and on lake margins throughout Africa, Madagascar and the Mediterranean countries. King Tut has a long history of use by humans, especially Ancient Egyptians - it is how we make papyrus paper. So beyond its beautiful aesthetics, it has been useful for hundreds of years. We use King Tut as a fun eye catching plant that adds texture and can take a beating from the hot, hot Florida sun. If you have any questions or need help planting yours -- don't be afraid to ask!

"The concept for C3 Gardens has been a dream of mine for almost a decade. I love plants, design, and Florida. After trialing new seasonal plant combinations on Marco Island for 5 years, we are now proud to offer the area the finest Custom, Creative, and Colorful gardens possible."
