When first introduced, Ornamental Millet was quite a departure for both growers and gardeners. But in the same manner that ornamental grasses have increased in popularity, this genus has followed suit. Used extensively in the landscape trade, as well as with home owners who are turning more towards exterior decorating, the attractive deep purple foliage, stems and flower plumes of this corn-like plant is a perfect fit in many landscape and garden settings.

The Harris Seeds company began catalog operation in 1879. It evolved from the efforts of Joseph Harris who was extremely successful in the selection of superior strains of vegetables and grains. The company became wildly popular because of his basic business philosophy - "Offer my customers a quality product at a fair price and they will return."
