Miniature Umbrella Palm is a dwarf aquatic perennial with narrow stems and bright green grass-like brackets at the tip forming an umbrella.  A fast grower that can grow new plants at the stem and leaf junctions- 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.
