There are many kinds that vary in ear size, kernel color, husk, and stalk color. Ivory and purple are two of the most common husk colors. The kernels are hard, like stone, which is how the name Flint corn came about.
Ornamental corn is available late summer through the fall.
Ornamental corn also known as Flint corn and Calico corn, is a type of grass within the species, Zea mays. There are many varieties of ornamental corn such as: Autumn Explosion, Green and Gold Splendor, Shock Dent and Indian Art.
Ornamental corn is widely used for fall decorating and creative crafts such as centerpieces, wreaths, and displays. Shuck back the ears to expose the colorful kernels. Tie husks into bunches and blend with bundles of wheat. Some varieties of ornamental corn are edible and can be ground down to make corn meal.
Corn does not grow wild, rather it evolved from teosinte, otherwise known as wild Mexican grass. It was originally cultivated by the Indians in the Americas. Later Christopher Columbus would introduce corn to Europe in the 1400’s then soon after it spread around the globe via explorers and traders. Ornamental corn will freely cross-pollinate with other types of corn, making isolation a necessary component of successful growing.
