Papyrus Plants – Will They Survive In The West Wales Climate.
I have recently seen papyrus plants in the aquatic garden centre near us. Despite the owner’s claims,I am sceptical that it will survive in the West Wales climate.What is your opinion/advice? I am keen to get some because it looks so exotic,but is too expensive for death by frost.
Papyrus (Cyperus Papyrus) You are quite right to be wary;this plant is definitely frost sensitive but as it grows from rhizomes you may be able to cover the crown with a thick mulch during the winter,which will probably give it the protection it needs.I am going to give it a go from seed next year,as I have found it in Mr Fothergill’s catalogue.
