Please contact me and we can work out some suitable trade. I am looking for the tall original papyrus...not the dwarf variety
I have some, what do you have to trade?
My main trade plants are a fine bright yellow hardy dayblooming water lily...name unknown...a quite large plant or divisions. The water lily is setting buds already and the largest plant is in bloom. Otherwise I have a nice bunch of divisions of the Pickerel Weed Pickerel Rush (Pontederia cordata).
Are you interested in any of these...I hope (smile).
Also, tell me about your papyrus, please.
Could either of you tell me if papyrus is a annual,or what? I grew it from seed over a yr ago and it died off in fall & never came back. I bought the seeds from Whatcom Seed Co. I have some beautiful pink lilies that are taking over my pond. Love to trade some (??)
Here is a link that might be useful: Whatcom seeds
Oh yeah, when you get to the site, click on CYPERUS papyrus-- alphabetically.
Sorry 'Lady' but you never answered me and I found some great plants locally for very little money.
And as for the question for Patty in Wisc, even though it is a sedge, Papyrus is very frost tender. I am sure it just froze...alas
I planted some of these seeds a few weeks ago, purchased from Whatcom/Seedrack. Can anyone tell me how long these normally take to germinate?
I have a section of my courtyard garden, near a corner wall, which is fairly constantly wet due to the natural topography, and would love to fill that section in with a unique, moisture loving plant like Papyrus (and Cobra Lily if it ever germinates)...
