- Intense chartreuse foliage and rich brown, pollenless panicles have a controlled, mounded shape that is more compact than others in the assortment, so plants ship well.
- Economical grower option – seed can be direct-sown into finish containers, plants are well-suited to pot sizes up to gallons, and the crop finishes fast.
- Great tillering, leading to a bushy plant habit that’s perfect for large containers and landscapes.
NOTE: Jade Princess requires warmer temperatures (above 60°F/16°C) than other millets to perform well.
