It’s a striking ornamental grass as well as a nutritious grain for people, chickens or any birds. Flower stalks emerge brilliant lime green and ripen to gold in time for finches and sparrows to load up before fall migration. Seed heads are a popular treat for caged birds too. And in the garden they add the element of movement, swaying gracefully in the slightest breeze.
Culture: Direct sow late spring in full sun—in blocks 2-4 inches apart the plants will hold each other up. Millet likes good soil and regular water.

These little millet seeds came packaged well and looked really good. Once planted the absolutely took off! Good germination rate and 3 weeks later we have 2 foot tall plants that are growing faster than anything else in our garden. Have already ordered more. Highly recommend!
