Designated as an All American Selection for 2003. The 4-5', deep purple, corn-like foliage is truly distinguished as a background plant. When mature the plants put up a purple seed head nearly a foot tall and an inch around. 10 seeds G10-21
I started it and basically forgot about in a greenhouse and then went away for a few weeks while someone else tended to us, and when I returned it was pretty far along and ended up just as described. As the other review says it's very upright.
Eye catching in all stages. Very upright so doesn't crowd neighbors. All guests to garden enjoyed the diversity it brought to the beds. better with lighter partners to take full advantage of deep coloration.
