  • Exciting colour for the only ornamental millet seed assortment on the market. Copper Prince begins as a light caramel colour, deepening to copper as it sends up rosy, foxtail-type panicles.
  • Rose-bronze panicles add late Summer interest.
  • Wide blades and excellent tillering plus height and spread like Jade Princess make this variety perfect for large containers and landscapes.
