North Carolina Indian Corn

North Carolina Indian CornAlthough Indian Corn has been a traditional Autumn favorite for many years, it has seen growing popularity year round in flower arrangements, wreaths and center pieces. This popularity can be attributed to two things: miniature Indian Corn and Specialty Corn.

Specialty corn such as Strawberry Popcorn and Miniature Blue Corn are unique. They add color and a country flavor to flower arrangements and center pieces without overpowering them. Indian Corn comes in traditional size as well as in the miniature size. The flexibility provided by the smaller sizes and color combinations makes corn ideal year round.
