Cypérus Zumula

Cyperus alternifolius or Alternate-leaved Tigernut, or (false) Papyrus is a species of flowering plant in the family Cyperaceae, native to Madagascar and eastern and southern Africa.

Also called Umbel plant, this species is often sold under the trade name of “papyrus”, a misnomer which should only be used to refer to the species Cyperus papyrus. It is grown almost everywhere as a water or indoor plant.
