Millet, Ornamental ‘Purple Majesty’ -(AAS Winner)

Millet Ornamental ‘Purple Majesty’

2003 AAS Winner. “Tall, dark and handsome” describes this purple-leaved millet. Young plants are green-leaved, direct sunlight induces the purple leaf color. Capable of growing 3 to 5 feet tall, the plants are embellished with 8- to 12-inch flower spikes. The immature spikes can be cut and used dramatically in floral arrangements. Left on the plant, the millet seed spike attracts birds that snack on seed. Purple Majesty is very easy to grow and is very tolerant of heat and low moisture. The purple leaf blades and spike are distinctly different from all other ornamentals. Please call the store (740)763-2873 for availability, prices, and sizes.
