Growing & Maintenance Tips for Cyperus involucratus 'Baby Tut®'

Baby Tut is a very fast grower and will quickly grow to impressive size. The plant can be planted in pots, along the waters edge of a pond, or even in a pond. The crown of the plant should never be covered in water and in fact can thrive in water as shallow as a few inches. The purpose is to keep the bulk of the soil or root mass wet. The root ball can be submerged but it isn't necessary. If the plant is put into a pot it is suggested to plug the hole or holes in the bottom of the pot to keep as much water as possible in the pot. Baby Tut is an evergreen or neutral grass. Once the grass turns brown it can either be removed immediately or removed in the spring.
