I saw these on holiday and some kind peeps on here id it for me, now I missed a chance to get some on ebay, does anybody know of anywhere I can buy some

On plant Cyperus alternifolius




I have got one in the garden at the moment which I am sure we bought from a nursery selling water garden plants quite some years ago.We just bought a small papyrus which looks slightly different to this but from the same group from Dorset Water lilies at Hampton Court but they don't do mail order.They had some fantastic plants.
I can try and take seeds ?

If you get the water type it will seed all around. Or do you know someone who has one? They are quite easily available in good aquatic centres.
