Product Overview

Zea mays

Add brilliant color and novelty to your flower or vegetable garden. Enjoy the variegated leaves and jewel-like, dark burgundy cobs as gorgeous autumn décor!

This beautiful, 5'–6' tall, ornamental heirloom corn dates back to at least the mid-1800s when it was brought to America from Japan. It has green, variegated leaves of pink, creamy white, yellow stripes, and dark purple tassels. A striking backdrop to a flowerbed or vegetable garden. Its cobs produce dark burgundy kernels that can be dried and saved for autumn displays or ground into a richly colored cornmeal.

Variety Info

Green, variegated leaves striped with pink, creamy white, and yellow; dark purple tassels. 6"–7" long ears with dark burgundy kernels.

Sowing Inside

Not recommended; roots sensitive to transplanting. Best results occur when seedlings are transplanted less than 2 weeks old.

Sowing Outside

RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks after your average last frost date, and when soil temperature is at least 60°F, ideally 65°–90°F.
