Maintenance Notes:
Cyperus Papyrus is not hardy enough to survive winters with freezing temperatures and it is not a candidate to overwinter inside. It is a very fast grower and will quickly grow to impressive size when replanted in the spring.
The plant can be planted in pots, along the waters edge of a pond, or even in a pond. The crown of the plant should never be covered in water and in fact both of these varieties can thrive in water as shallow as a few inches. The purpose is to keep the bulk of the soil or root mass wet.
The root ball can be submerged but it isn't necessary. If the plant is put into a pot, I would suggest plugging the hole or holes in the bottom of the pot to keep as much water as possible in the pot.
Prince Tut will also do well when planted in normal garden beds. It is best to keep the soil moist, but once established Price Tut has can be surprisingly tolerant of dry conditions.
Prince Tut is an evergreen or neutral grass. Where temperatures get colder than 35 degrees F, the plants should be treated as annuals. Once the grass turns brown it can either be removed immediately or removed in the spring. It should not be expected to live through the winter and begin growing again in the spring.

One of Pete's Picks:

I can go ALL summer.
A nicely compact form of Egyptian Papyrus, about half the height of King Tut, but with the same large poms on the ends of the stems
Fun and interesting, without being so overwhelmingly huge
With shorter stems than King Tut, Prince Tut is quite sturdy and less likely to have stems flop
