Cat Grass, Zumula
Cats really, really like eating this plant.
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!
“Prrrh! Meow meow meooow Zumula. Prrr meep—mmph brrep. Meow mroww meow-meow oof! Meep prrr Zumula. Meewr!”
