The plant is commonly referred to as an umbrella papyrus plant. The green-colored leafy bracts grow into a circle looking like an umbrella. The plant features multiple upright stems long, rigid, and slender and topped with large leafy bracts. Cyperus plants produce unattractive, flattened and elongated flower spikelets in summers. The flowers grow in dense clusters at the tip of the stems, between the leafy bracts.
