The leaves of ‘Jester’ purple millet (Pennisetum glaucum ‘Jester’) start out bright yellow, gradually turning deep purple as the summer progresses. Upright stems that usually reach 4 to 6 feet tall are topped with dense, brushy seedheads. Excellent in the garden and containers. The seedheads are also wonderful in fresh and dried arrangements, if you get them before the birds do! Full sun. Annual.
Collected in August and September 2023. At least 15 seeds. Shipping to US addresses only.
