Broomfield, Colorado, the home of Botanical Interests, was named after the broom corn plant around 1900 when a lot of farmland was devoted to growing it. Brooms were traditionally made from the straw-like fibers after stripping off the seeds. Broom Corn is a member of the grass family, so instead of growing tassels and ears like sweet corn, it is topped by richly colored shiny seeds. Harvest them for fall dècor and dried arrangements, or grow enough to make your own broom!

    I was initially skeptical of such a good deal but I forgot about these leaves in my mailbox for TWO DAYS and they were still in amazing shape! the smallest leaf I received was a little dehydrated and he might not make it but I totally assume responsibility for its likely demise. I received 4 different and really beautifully patterned leaf cuttings.
