Ornamental Grass Broomcorn Millet
Broomcorn Millet Purple Seeded
Panicum miliaceum violaceum
This unique grass is one of my all time favorites to grow and cut. The deep green and black tipped seed heads arch over from strong stems, resembling miniature, drooping broomcorn. Their elegantly draped, tassel-like blooms look amazing in late summer and autumn bouquets, producing abundantly for many weeks from one planting.
