A great season extender, ornamental kale (also known as flowering kale) provides
outstanding color under cooler temperatures, which they
prefer. Specific varieties have also been bred for bedding or
restaurant use while others are for cut flower production.
Generally the leaves are darker than the center, and all will color up nicely under cooler temperatures, making this item great for fall color and food garnishes. Dwarf types make a nice addition to fall landscapes as well as containers. There are also a few unusual taller types that cut flower growers are becoming more familiar with for use in mixed bouquets.
