Colored Uprights
(Sorghum bicolor)

100 days — The 'Colored Upright' sorghum is very similar in color to our 'Mixed Colors Broom Corn' seed mix but with shorter, generally more compact seed heads and with less broom fiber. The seed colors can include reds, browns, golds, blacks, burgundies and many shades in between. The colors are very intense and vibrant.

'Colored Uprights', with its smaller more compact seed heads, can be used in their entirety in dried arrangements and floral bouquets. The seeds in these upright seed heads seem to shatter (fall out) less frequently than in the mature 'Mixed Colors Broom' seed heads.

Although commonly called "Broom Corn", Sorghum bicolor is not truly corn. The stalks are similar to corn but they do not produce ears. Seed heads appear from the tops of the plants instead of a tassel. Each packet contains 0.25 ounce, which is approximately 320 seeds.
Nice and Colorful
Plant were tall, easily pushing 8 to 9 feet. I got a yield of over half a gallon of grain out of my 4-foot X 4-foot test bed. There was very little lodging. The only thing of concern I noticed is if its wet at the end of season it can sprout instead of dry out on the stalk. Overall, I am very pleased with it and can see using it a food for me or my livestock.
