Details(Cyperus)Vertical interest that 'wows'! Graceful Grasses® Prince Tut™ is a new kid in town, standing much shorter than its Father King Tut™ . Standing 30-48 inches tall and spreading to 36 inches wide ( these sizes are based on ground plantings in the south). For the northern gardener you may see heights in a container of 30 inches tall and up to 2 foot wide. With its compact size and sturdy stems, Prince Tut™ is less likely to have floppy stems. When planting Prince Tut™ make sure that you give it enough space or a large enough container to grow. Prince Tut™ is a heat tolerant plant but does prefer to be kept moist, it can grow in bogs or at the water's edge as well as in a border or mass planting. Planted in full sun to part, Prince Tut™ makes an excellent thriller for combination planters. Add a nice statement to your containers with Prince Tut™ Cyperus Grass.

Prince Tut™ really stood out in my trails this past summer. It was the perfect size for my combination planters and I planted it with Supertunias® and Intensia® Phlox. It stood very firm with no stem flopping, even after a hard rain or wind. Prince Tut™ is a fast grower and will easily fill out your container. I recommend planting in a pot that is at least 18-24 inches across.
