This pretty, dark red (now and then also yellow) ornamental maize gives spherical to finger-long cobs. It only matures when the days get shorter and arts and craft time is announced. It looks great in autumn and pre-Christmas flower arrangements. Height reaches 150 cm.

Sow in May directly into the garden bed with 40 cm spacing. Ensure nutrient-rich soil and remember it loves a sunny spot with regular watering. Harvest in October and store in dry conditions.
