Striped Japonica Ornamental Corn

While the deep burgundy-kerneled ears of this Ornamental Corn are lovely for fall table displays, you'll most likely grow this corn for its spectacular foliage: green brilliantly striped with pink, cream and yellow. The dark purple tassels are a welcome bonus. Wonderful in colorful mixed borders, it also makes a dramatic thriller in large container plantings and an unusual annual hedge. At the end of the season, allow the ears to dry completely on the stalk before harvesting, and then allow them to dry in a cool, dry spot for a little longer until a kernel heated in oil will pop. Remove the kernels from the cobs and store them in an airtight container for burgundy-accented popcorn all year long! Space this variety at least 18" apart for the best foliage colors. Height: 5' to 6'. One packet of about 150 seeds
