    2 grams (~100 seeds)

    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!

    Celosias have been loved and grown by American gardeners since the 1700s, and ‘Red Flame’ doesn’t disappoint. Its compact, uniform, “cockscomb” flower heads are made up of hundreds of tiny flowers arranged in tight waves, and are very long lasting in the garden or a vase. Like a moth to a flame, ‘Red Flame’ calls in pollinators to its prolific blooms from summer until frost, and songbirds will follow, enjoying the seeds in fall and winter.
