Plant spread:

Umbrella sedges, ornamental grasses belonging to the Cyperaceae family, are herbaceous perennials commonly grown in backyard containers and water gardens. These aquatic plants flourish in the moist wetland soil at creeks and pond edges, and can help hold wet soil together, especially around water sources with sloping banks.

Umbrella sedges come in a variety of types, including a popular dwarf variety (Cyperus albostriatus) and the larger Cyperus involucratus. They tend to grow quickly, often overpowering their original planting location, and require some yearly trimming.

Bloom time: Early July through late August
Max reacahble height: 6-25 inches.

Planting and care

Umbrella sedge can grow in standing moisture or in ponds as well as in perennial beds if watered regularly. It also is suitable for container growing, and you can grow it as a houseplant in cold winter areas. If you have limited garden space, plant it in a container before adding it to ponds or gardens to restrain its root growth.

Umbrella sedge can become invasive under the right conditions either by spreading its seeds or by forming clumps. When the clumps get too large or root-bound, unpot them or dig them up to divide them.

Sunlight: Full sun or partial shade.
Soil: -
Water: Water regularly.
Temperature: Warm.
Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizers.

Caring for Umbrella Sedge

  • The main concern about Cyperus houseplants is the moisture level and consistency.
  • The umbrella houseplants must never be allowed to dry out.
  • Apply a half dilution of fertilizer once per month during the growing season and suspend in winter.
  • Watch for splashing on the leaves, as fungal diseases can spread in this manner.
  • Propagating this plant is easy. Just take a 4- to 6-inch cutting and suspend it upside down in water.
  • Roots will emerge and you can place the new plant in soil.
  • Divide your houseplant every three years. Remove the plant from the pot and cut out the outside growth.
  • Save and pot up this newer growth and discard the old central older plant.
