What Kind Of Wheat Should I Use To Make Wreaths?

just_me_6(WV 6 - West Virginia-Tri State)July 29, 2008

I'm thinking of growing a small patch of wheat to use for wreaths but I don't know what kind of wheat would be the best to use. Can anyone recommend a good variety that would make the prettiest wreaths?

Hi. It depends on what kind of wheat you're looking for-a typical all-yellow variety, or one with dark awns. Johnny's Selected Seeds carries a variety called Silver Tip-they say it had the largest heads of the vars. they tested. They also carry a Black Tip, which has regular heads, but black awns. The dark-tipped wheat is my favorite for fall decorating, especially sheaves. Pinetree Seeds also carries some wheat varieties. If you don't have time to grow it this season, I've gotten excellent wheat from DriedFlowersRus. com.
