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.

Within a few days of our order, we had beautiful, healthy plants delivered to our yard. Talk about a pleasant surprise to have everything we asked for unloaded and waiting for us when we were ready to plant without having to leave the house.

An amazing resource for plants, advice and landscape expertise. ServScape designed a rooftop garden for me which included the design, sourcing the planting materials, and installation, including a small irrigation system.

My order exceeded expectations last summer! Plus everything in pots and in the ground came back bigger and better early this spring.
