Product Overview

Sorghum bicolor

The ultimate fall decoration and treat for the birds! Harvest seed sprays for dried arrangements or grow enough to make an old-fashioned broom.

Broomfield, Colorado, the home of Botanical Interests, was named after the broom corn plant around 1900 when a lot of farmland was devoted to growing it. Brooms were traditionally made from the straw-like fibers after stripping off the seeds. Broom Corn is a member of the grass family, so instead of growing tassels and ears like sweet corn, it is topped by richly colored shiny seeds. Harvest them for fall dècor and dried arrangements, or grow enough to make your own broom!

Variety Info

16"–20" seed panicles; seeds range in color from reds to browns and blacks.

Sowing Inside

Not recommended.

Sowing Outside

RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks after your average last frost date, and when soil temperature is 60°–80°F. In the deep South, this can mean as early as February.
