Striking Plants Ideal for Borders, Mass Plantings and in the
Ornamental Millet is a tall, grasslike plant that adds
dramatic height to gardens and large containers.
Purple Majesty reaches 4 to 5 ft. (1.2 to 1.5 m) tall in
the garden with 12 to 14-in. (30 to 35-cm) flower
plumes. At the time of flowering, Jester is
approximately three-quarters the height of Purple
Majesty, and Purple Baron is about two-thirds
the height of Purple Majesty.

Hi Raleigh...Nice plant, all the way from the US...

sounds interesting!!!! can you split them when they get bigger, are they clump forming?

Hi Raleigh- looking at the pic I would say can split most grassses...It's the kind of thing that would just suit a new border we're creating at the house some very old hostas, and i would like to combine them with perhaps grasses etc, but of the colouring of yours, especially the extra bonus i think...
It also reminds me of a Phormium...
