Cat Grass, Zumula

Short Description

Cats really, really like eating this plant.

Full Description

Cyperus alternifolius, best known as umbrella plant, is an appealing grass-like plant related to sedge grass. ‘Zumula’s compact 10" height is perfectly suited for indoors. Young foliage is fresh and bright-green; in due course, distinctive “umbrellas” make their appearance. Cats really enjoy it, but no worries—it’s not poisonous. And just listen to what they have to say!
