I bought some seeds for this corn and was wondering if anyone else had planted it? I was going to try and winter sow it because starting outdoors from seed really doesn't do well here. Anyone ever tried this corn? It has beautiful variegated foliage. Marg

This did well for me. I sowed it in large containers as the back drop to petunias. I cover the containers with clear plastic bags so it is a version of winter sowing. It should do really well where you are.
