White teff (Eragrostis tef) is pretty enough to grow as an ornamental grass in beds or containers, or in the cutting garden, with gracefully arching sprays of pale seedheads. The plants typically reach about 2 feet tall before starting to bloom in midsummer and continue to look pretty for months. Teff is also valued as a nutritious, gluten-free grain, producing a bounty of tiny but abundant seeds. If you cut off the ripened heads in late summer (I gather a bunch of stems in one hand and cut them off about 2 inches above the ground), you may be able to harvest another crop of seed in mid fall. Full sun. Annual.
Collected in August 2022. At least 100 seeds.
