Description

An excellent item for dot planting. Beautiful variegated leaves in striations of white, pink, purple and all shades of green. Absolutely striking in a container or the back of a mixed border. Ornamental Corn is excellent to dry and use in autumn bouquets (combine with fresh flowers) and dried flower arrangements. Just cut off the cobs and remove the surplus leaves and hang them upside down in a cool environment with some draught.
