Planting notes. Papyrus is native to warm climates and therefore is not suitable for growing outdoors everywhere. In some climates, papyrus is treated as an annual or brought indoors over winter. While it typically goes dormant in most climates over winter, rhizomes protected from frost underground will resprout in spring. Papyrus grows best in rich, fertile soils that maintain constant moisture — it even will grow in shallow water. It’s more of a marginal plant and doesn’t grow well in deep water like water lilies will. Plant it in full to partial sun, while allowing it to thrive in partial shade. It’s a plant that requires medium maintenance — keep the soil wet, remove old culms (stems) after flowering and protect it from wind for best success.See more guides to great design plants
There are no symmetrical elements of this contemporary patio, yet the components feel balanced thanks to the rectilinear design "blocks" aligned both perpendicularly and horizontally with the home's facade. The stepping-stone "carpet" and the section of oat grasses balance nicely with the solid concrete patio and the pool. These elements and textures are all the more exciting because of the asymmetrical arrangement.
