Quick Overview:

Smallest of the Umbrella Palms, the Dwarf Umbrella Palm grows only 18-24 inches tall with whorls of spiked foliage atop its slender but rigid green stems. It’s very popular for smaller areas in bogs and planters, and grows well in sun and shade. Water depths should not exceed 3 inches.

Description

The Dwarf Umbrella Palm is a close cousin of the famous Egyptian papyrus plant. Like papyrus, the Dwarf Umbrella Palm grows in clumps in wet and boggy areas, although it will thrive in drier situations as well. This variety of the Umbrella Palm only grows about 2 feet tall. As with all the Cyperus plants, it is viviparous and will grow new plants from the junction of the leaf and stem.
