Morning dew covers the King Tut ornamental grass.

King Tut is an annual ornamental grass and a member of the same papyrus family of plants from which the ancient Egyptians made paper. Some papyrus plants grow up to 15 feet tall, but the King Tut cultivar is a dwarf variety that reaches 4 or 5 feet in height. Large pendulous heads with medium-green leafy rays adorn the sturdy stems, and green-brown flower clusters appear during the summer. Eventually, the flowers produce nut-like fruits.
