Painted Mountain Ornamental Corn

Easy to Grow!

This hardy strain has descended from 70 varieties of native corn rescued from Indians and homesteaders who lived in some of the harshest climates of the U.S. and Canada. Tolerant to heat, drought, high winds and cold nights. Makes superb flour, hominy and parched corn. Can be eaten fresh when young. A striking ornamental, with more beautiful colors than any variety we've seen. 90 DAYS.
