Purple Majesty Millet

Pennisetum glaucum. Use this bold Ornamental Grass to add serious oomph to your hot, sunny borders and containers. Its deep, burgundy to almost-black blades grow robustly, quickly forming a hefty mass of easy-care drama. In mid-summer it shoots forth fat, fuzzy flower spikes in the same shade as the foliage, yet flecked with pale gold. They give vignettes a strong vertical punch and are wonderful as both fresh and dried cut flowers. Best direct-sown after the last spring frost date, it can also be sown indoors 6 to 8 weeks earlier. Annual. Summer flowering. Height: 3' to 5'. Average seed life: 1 to 2 years. One packet of about 20 seeds
