This papyrus is doing well this year, even after the brackish water of the bayou covered the bottom about 5 inches for a while when the hurricanes passed further south of us earlier. I was worried for a while, but they look fine.

Neat. Have plans to use it for anything?

It has just become part of the natural landscape. I was just curious if it would do well with the brackish water of the bayou. I used to have it submerged in a freswater pond before we move to this house. So, since it was still in a pot, I brought it here and planted it.
The first year it just sort of barely held its own. The second year it was still just hanging in there. The third year, 2008, it finally started a little new growth. (Shown in picture) I'll see what it does this year.

Cool. I have always admired those and would love to have one but I guess they really are sort of specialized. It would be expensive to try to re-create the Nile Valley here in MIddle Tennessee so I will just have to admire them from afar.
