Product ID: 3394

New! Easy cut-flower annual to grow and harvest.

Strong stems are nicely arched at the top where 1/2- 3/4", nodding spikes dance and glitter. Makes a beautiful cut flower. Easy to harvest: cut the entire clump once seed heads are full, but still green. NOTE: Plants self-seed readily and can become invasive. Not recommended for use in rotation with grain crops or for landscaping. Take care to harvest seed-producing stems to avoid self-seeding and weed issues. Also known as rye brome, common chess, and little sea oats. Ht. 24-36". Avg. 8,500 seeds/oz. Packet: 200 seeds.
