Also love this but have tried keeping in a border and also in a pot and bringing inside but both died 😟 @Leroybe is your border dry and a wet one ? X

@susiwoo I would say it's more of a dry border than wet & I don't water it. It's actually below a yew & grows up through it. 😊

@susiwoo there is a more tender one called cyperus papyrus,that needs boggy ground,I tried that one but it couldn't survive the winters. The Alternifolius seems to be much hardier & more tolerant of drier conditions. 😊
