Ah-maize-ing corn colours

I've been getting a bit experimental at Salisbury Grange (aka my garden). And the most surprising result of late is the most amazing maize that has produced cherry red, maroon, deep purple and sunflower yellow kernels! You can't beat nature for spectacular hues and colour combinations. I've spied some equally sensational colours from Mother Nature's palette on Instagram from inventive growers around Australia and the US. A huge thanks to the king of colour, Mr Rudy Bell, for inspiring the descriptions below!
