Product Details

Hot Biscuits' plumes rise in upright spikes of caramel-colored inflorescence, providing a welcomed variation of shape and color in the garden and make an eye-catching contrast in flower arrangements; especially great for autumn bouquets. Flowers attract pollinators and produce high-protein, edible seeds. (Instructions inside the packet for harvesting the seeds for eating.) If seed heads are left in the garden, birds will enjoy them in the fall. To create more branches and fuller plants, pinch plant tips when young. Also known as Prince's Feather, plants are heat tolerant and drought tolerant once established.
