Umbrella Palm is a aquatic perennial with tall stems and grass-like brackets at the tip forming an umbrella.  A fast grower that may flop if becomes to tall and take root- it spreads easy so it is best planted in a container.  Grows best in full sun  with moist to standing water and rich soils.  Will die back if exposed to frost.
