Neutral Farmerdill On Nov 14, 2005, Farmerdill from Augusta, GA (Zone 8a) wrote:

Hybrid ornamental developed for improved lodging resistance and color variation. 8" - 9" ears have various combinations of glossy red, white, pink, yellow, cola, purple, and variegated kernels. Some kernels are striped and spotted. Approximately 25% of ears have purple husks. Stalks are sturdy and keep standing after ears dry down.
