Cyperus papyrus, also known as giant papyrus, is the original paper plant.  Used to make scrolls in the ancient times, this is one of the most sought after tropical marginal plants on the market.  Large stalks terminate into puff ball like heads creating a truly tropical look for the pond. Giant Papyrus reaches a rather large size and can create large stands.  Can be used in any size pond with pruning, but is best suited for larger features.
