Broom Corn is not really a corn; it's a sorghum. This variety is a mix of fall type colors. This is primarily used for decorative items, fall displays, and crafts. The tassels look like straw broom, hence the name. Broom corn is an all around, great addition to any garden, corn maze, or pumpkin patch. The stalks tower at eight feet tall! Let's just say the homesteading, beyond organic lifestyle is worth it! Happy growing!!!
