|Broom Corn (Mixed Colors) (Sorghum bicolor)
100-110 days. Not actually a true corn, rather it is an ornamental sorghum, very popular for decorations and crafts. Mixed Colors Broom Corn is a tall annual grass that looks like a corn plant, except that it makes fan-shaped seed heads instead of ears, appearing at the top of the plant in place of a tassel. The seeds are loved by birds, and are also edible and can be sprouted, cooked, popped, or ground into flour. Stalks grow 7-9' in height, with seed heads being 24-36" long. This Mixed Colors Broom Corn seed is, as the name implies, a mixture of many different broom corn varieties. The colors that predominate in this mix include gold, bronze, black, burgundy, red, white/cream, natural, and all shades of these colors. The broom heads can be harvested for brooms or ornamental uses anytime after the seed head develops. Harvesting and drying the seed heads at various stages of development, result in varied appearances in the color of seed. As the plant matures, the seed heads will deepen in color and the seeds will become heavier and shiny, when dried they make a beautiful and unique addition to flower arrangements. The stalks when dried make excellent brooms, tie a few together to make a strong and long lasting broom.
