Just curious who here has tried growing this variety of corn. I hear that it gets "only" five-to-six-feet tall and that it has several different colors, and that it is bred to grow well in colder, mountainous regions.

I live in a cold part of Pennsylvania so it appeals to me. I think I am going to try to grow a small stand (maybe 8-10 plants) this coming year and see what happens. I'm originally from the South so I've never grown corn with a shorter growing season, or ornamental corn (on purpose, at least, some of my former corn did have inexplicable red kernels).
Keep going!
