Hello all! I was up in Scarborough, ME, last week and saw this really cool plant in a planter, but no one seemed to know what it was. It looks like a mini cornstalk with some very soft plum/brown plumes on the ends. I love it! Anyone know what this one is?

Wow, it sure is gorgeous! It looks like Ornamental Millet:
