Pennisetum glaucum

Webstore Exclusive.

Stunning, decorative millet with deep purple foliage and seeds.

This wonderful grain is as ornamentally valuable as it is nutritious, growing about 4' tall and providing ample pollen for bumblebees and food for birds and humans! Its structure and color is striking in both gardens and edible landscapes. Open-pollinated. 

We originally received seeds from this variety from the purple-loving character Thumbs Heath, of Peaceful Purple Produce People fame. We're so grateful to Thumbs for his work stewarding so many varieties of purple seeds over these many years, and we're excited this one has made it into our Co-op offerings.

Seeds grown by the Idaho Botanical Garden and Flower with Rye in Boise, Idaho, and Oasis Homestead in Nampa, Idaho.

110 seeds.

Directions: Start indoors in individual pots 6-8 weeks before last frost, or direct seed after last frost.
