Foxtail Millet (Setaria marcostachya) 400 seeds (#970)

Foxtail millet is the second-most widely planted species of millet, and the most important in East Asia. It has the longest history of cultivation among the millets, having been grown in China since sometime in the sixth millennium BC.
Foxtail millet is an annual grass with slim, vertical, leafy stems which can reach a height of 120–200 cm.
The seedhead is a dense, hairy panicle 5–30 cm long.
A stunning addition to the home landscape. Good for cutting and drying and works in nicely with flower arrangements. Also very nutritious for birds, and if the seed heads are allowed to ripen, wildlife will be attracted to the landscape.
Succeeds in any well-drained soil in full sun. Established plants are very drought resistant. Because the plant flowers in late summer there are problems with harvesting a good crop of seed in Britain. Apart from that, the plant grows well here.
