Bred by and named for Luther Burbank (1849-1926) "The Wizard of Horticulture", this gorgeous black grained barley substitutes well for wheat in recipes and malts for beer-making. Ornamental plants reach 3 feet (1 meter.)

And though we are only stewards of seed, this thought resonates:

"What a joy life is when you have made a close working partnership with Nature, helping her to produce for the benefit of mankind new forms, colors, and perfumes in flowers which were never known before; fruits in form, size, and flavor never before seen on this globe; and grains of enormously increased productiveness, whose fat kernels are filled with more and better nourishment, a veritable storehouse of perfect food—new food for all the world's untold millions for all time to come."

1926 Luther Burbank

A neat trivia tidbit - Henry Ford moved the home that Luther Burbank was born in, as well as his California garden office to Michigan's Greenfield Village in Dearborn.
