Papyrus is a clumping aquatic plant that was used most famously in history by ancient Egyptians to make paper. Native to the Nile river, papyrus thrives as a submerged water plant in full or part sun and is sensitive to frost. In modern times the papyrus can be used to purifying and clean water, or simply grown as an ornamental.
