Intense lime green leaves, controlled and mounded shape, and pollenless heads make this variety shine in the store, and outdoors in landscapes and mixed or mono containers. Jade Princess is a “must have” for landscapers and consumers looking for plants in the popular chartreuse colour group. It offers an economical option to growers – seed can be direct-sown into finish containers, plants are well-suited to pot sizes up to gallons, and the crop finishes fast. The most compact of the PanAmerican Seed millets, the plants ship well. Note: Jade Princess requires warmer temperatures than other millets to perform well.
