Cyperus isocladus (Dwarf Papyrus) - This is the shortest papyrus we offer, growing only 1 foot in height. The greenish-brown summer flowers and short needle-thin leaf-bracts bare (leafless) top stems. This is a delicate looking evergreen species that should be used where it won't get overpowered by larger, coarser plants. Grow in water at a depth up to 4 inches, in moist rock gardens or in pots. Best in light shade. It is hardy to about 20-25 degrees F.  This description is based on our research and observations of this plant as it grows in containers at our nursery, in our own garden and in other gardens. We also appreciate receiving feedback of any kind from those who have additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or have additional cultural tips that would aid others growing Cyperus isocladus .
