More Details

The Umbrella Palm, scientifically known as Cyperus alternifolius, is a fascinating perennial that brings a unique architectural element to gardens, patios, and even indoor spaces. Renowned for its umbrella-like clusters of slender leaves at the top of tall stems, this plant creates a dramatic focal point in various settings. With appropriate care, the Umbrella Palm thrives in both aquatic and terrestrial environments, making it a versatile choice for those looking to add a touch of the exotic to their garden or home.

Growth rate: Moderate growth rate; matures to a height of 2-6 feet and a width of 2-3 feet.

Pruning: Little to no pruning is necessary. Remove any dead or yellow leaves and stems to maintain its appearance.

Fertilization: Use a balanced, slow-release fertilizer once in the spring to encourage robust growth.

Winter Protection: In colder zones, bring the plant indoors or apply mulch around its base to offer protection from frost.


Select a location that offers full sun to partial shade and either wet or consistently moist soil. Dig a hole about twice the size of the root ball, amending with organic matter if needed for better moisture retention. Place the plant in the hole, making sure it's at the same soil level as it was in its original pot. Backfill the hole with the amended soil, pressing down to remove air pockets. If planting in water, ensure the crown is 1-2 inches below the water surface. Thoroughly water the plant after planting, and keep the soil or water consistently moist for optimal growth.

The Umbrella Palm enjoys locations with full sun to partial shade and requires consistent moisture, whether it's planted in a pond or in soil. Ensure regular watering to maintain its tropical lushness.
