Floral Friday : Ornamental Kale

Ornamental cabbage and kale are in the same species,Brassica oleracea, as edible cabbages and kale. They are the result of hybridizing.IMG_3327

By cross pollination, botanists were able to hybridize the many colors and textures of Flowering or Ornamental Kale and Cabbages that we grow today.

These annual plants are very showy, and come in a variety of colors, ranging from white to pinks, purples or reds.These plants can be grown indoors in a large pot. However, the length of time that they will last in the home will vary, depending on the temperature. A brightly lighted, cool room, is the best location. Kale and Ornamental cabbage plants prefer cool weather. IMG_3328Although Kale plants may be set out in the spring and allowed to grow through the summer, the best time to plant them is in the early fall. Ornamental Cabbage and kale should be planted in a sunny location in a moderately moist, rich soil.
