Setaria viridis ‘Caramel’ – Foxtail millet

One of our bestselling cut grasses, everyone seems to love these soft, little foxtail-shaped flower heads in a warm, caramel. As a millet it is also very popular with our resident sparrows. This is an unusual variety which is rarely offered.

Plant type: half hardy annual

Site: full sun

Height: 80cm

Plant spacing: 25cm

Sown to grown: 20 weeks

Min. seeds per packet: 100 seeds

Growing tips: sow 6-8 weeks before the last frost. Self seeds prolifically so clear crop promptly at the end of the season.

Harvesting/Arranging tips: the flower heads are small enough to work in as a gestural finishing flourish, enhancing the other flower without dominating which I find some of the other millets do.
