This is the wild variety Coix lacryma-jobi, a grass whose seed pods are very hard and used as beads for making rosaries, necklaces, and jewelry. They are said to have sprung up all along the 'Trail of Tears' after the forced migration of the Cherokee. The color ranges from shiny white to silver to warm earthen tones and black. It can be planted directly in the garden where it makes a wonderful ornamental with its seeds glowing like strings of pearls. I will send 25 seeds for you to try.
