Description

Sorghum - Broomcorn - Sorghum vulgare

Tender Annual This ornamental grain is not a corn but actually a type of sorghum. The 24"-36" seed heads come in a rainbow of warm tints including cream, gold, red, brown, burgundy and more. Use the tops in wreaths, dry flower arrangements, baskets and other fall decor. It takes about 60 tops to make a broom.

Did You Know? Flat brooms made out of broomcorn, like the ones commonly seen today, were invented by the Shakers in the 19th century.

Soil and Water: Broomcorn produces the best brushes in deep, well-drained, rich soil. Water deeply once a week, after it is established. It is a heavy feeder so it needs fertile soil.

Planting and Growing: Plant 2 weeks after last frost. Plant a minimum of 4 rows for pollination in rows spaced at least 16" apart. Broomcorn loves the heat.

Harvesting and Storage: Harvest by cutting off the brushes when the seed pods fully change colors but the stems are still pliable. Dry by hanging upside down or place them in a container and they will dry in an arched shape.
