Pure Prairie Ornamental Grasses - Sudan Grass, Wheat, Foxtail Millet
These annual species of decorative grasses are very easy to grow and are extremely attractive when planted in the border or used to create a focal point at the edge of a pond or lawn. Plant seed in clumps or groups for the best effect.
This package contains:
Sudan Grass (Sorghum bicolor var.sudanenses) A magnificent backdrop in any garden that produces large "broom" style heads. They look especially festive in a fall garden. Broom Corn can grow 1-2 meters in height under ideal conditions. It does well in poorer soils and can withstand periods of drought. The tassels make great harvest or Halloween decorations.
Copper Wheat (Triticum aestivum) Add great colour, strength and beauty to your garden. This plump variety of wheat grows over a meter high with large awned heads reaching 10-20cm. in height. As this wheat ripens, its colour turns from a deep green to a reddish copper. Cut stems for use as filler in arrangements when either green or copper.
Golden Foxtail Millet (Setaria italica) A draping grass forming a fuzzy foxtail style flower on a delicate stem. This millet grows 50-150cm. high and the flowers are 10-15cm in length. A great backdrop or filler that develops quickly in warm summer weather. Display when heads are developed but green or wait until heads have matured. Millet does best with good moisture but will tolerate some drought. Birds will be attracted to this natural feeder.
