Pennisetum glaucum ‘Jester’ (Purple Millet) [15 Seeds]

(1 customer review)


Germination Information: I suggest starting these seeds indoors, about 1/4″ deep, in a warm, bright place in early to mid spring. Sow them into cell packs, or sow them all in one pot and transplant them in groups to individual pots when they’re 1 to 2 inches tall. (Use groups of 6 to 8 or so if you want bigger clumps faster, or 3 or 4 per pot if you want a larger number of starter plants.)

Note that this information will not appear on the seed packet you receive.

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.
