Strawberry corn strawberry maize

Pretty dark-red (occasionally also yellow) ornamental maize with roundish to finger-long cobs. It only matures when the days are getting shorter and crafting time starts. It looks good in autumn and pre-Christmas flower arrangements. Height about 150cm.

Sow in rows (40cm distance) directly in the garden bed in May. Use nutrient rich soil. Loves sunny locations and regular watering. Harvest in October and store dry.
