This Dutch grass species is grown in the greenhouse. It has fresh green leaves and a very special inflorescence. This ornamental grass can always be recognized by its shape. The Cyperus Glaber forms high triangular stems on which dense clusters of yellow-green round flowers bloom at the top, giving them great ornamental value.
This species is also known as ‘Umbrella plant’ and is related to the Papyrus plant (Cyperus papyrus). It is a subtropical swamp plant from East Africa where the plant can reach a height of 2 or 3 meters.
Once or twice a week the grower checks his crop for cutting. Long plumes grow on top that are normally cut off.
The plants are planted in February and the first flowers bloom around mid-May. The grass is available until October. They grow to a maximum length of about 80 cm and the grower cuts them near the ground. It is a fun and affordable filler for bouquets.
This plant is sown and it is therefore an annual product. The supplier usually grows Panicum in the greenhouse, because if it grows outside, the grass will turn brown in color.
This product is available almost all year round, including from Italy.
This Dutch product is also grown in a greenhouse or under a tunnel. They are perennials, so multi-annual products. Once a week the grower cuts this ornamental grass.
The grower plants this grass in March, and the plants grow to a length of 60/65 cm in approximately 8-10 weeks.
Pennisetum is available until mid-September.
