Ornamental Millet (Pennisetum glaucum)  is one of the oldest cultivated grains in the world (2500-2000 BC).  Historically, it was grown as a source of nutrition (and still is in many part of the world), and today, it is also used as an excellent ornamental fillerIts tall, flurry plumes add depth and it comes in a range of colors, from bright green to bronze to dark purple.


CARE & HANDLING: Millet works wonderfully as a dried botanical.  To do so, first gather millet into small bunches, then secure stems together with a rubber band, string, or wire.  Next, hang bunches upside down in a dark location with plenty of ventilation. Wait 3-4 weeks or until the millet feels rigid.
