Earth Tones Dent Ornamental Corn & Sorghum Sow in mid to late May for a mid September harvest. Grow at the same soil temperature and sowing depths/density as sweet corn. Ornamental corn should be harvested by hand when the husks dry, often after one or two frosts. Leave the ears in the husk and complete the drying process in a sheltered environment. Ornamental corn will freely cross-pollinate with other corn, so keep it separate from sweet corn crops. Farm markets make ideal outlets for cheerful, festive bundles. 1184U Bloody Butcher 100 days.
