A handsome perennial for moist or waterlogged soil and pond margins. Cyperus longus can be grown in water up to 25cm (10") deep, so makes a useful marginal aquatic for deep ponds and lakes.

The dense, thick growth of Cyperus makes it a useful habitat for encouraging wildlife to the garden. Galingale plants are exotic-looking, with umbrella-like stems and foliage, and reddish-bronze spikelets during the height of summer. Height: 120cm (48"). Spread: 100cm (40").Planting depth: Zones 1, 2 & 3 to 25cm (10") below water level.

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow

More Info
Cyperus require very little maintenance. Trim back the old foliage to just above water level in autumn.
