wish you were closer ... have a papyrus that we dont want ... ie, didnt realize it wasnt hardy here, so overwintered it inside ... it's now sitting on the edge of the basement pond wishing for water (not dead yet, but not happy) ... it's more than 3' tall, so not something that can be shipped ... this time last year it was in a 4" pot ...

What do you consider a mini size? I have an umbrella plant that grows to about 30" tall and spreads like a weed, and is fully Winter-hardy in zone 5. I don't have any great pictures of it, but check this (large!) image on the far-left...

That bundle started from a single stem the year before, and this year I cut it apart and moved it to the edge of deep areas to try to limit how much it spreads.
