Ornamental Kale 4.5" to 9"
4.5" to 5" $7.50
Ornamental kale plants can make a wonderful red, pink, purple, or white show in your cool season garden, with very minimal care.
Ornamental kale plants (Brassica oleracea) and their cousin, the ornamental cabbage, were developed for their spectacular colors and are not edible.
Although they are sometimes called flowering kale, the plants rarely put out real flowers.
The color is all in their extravagantly ruffled and feathered leaves.
Ornamental kale plants are best used as an annual in spring and fall gardens, and in container gardens.
Flowering kale care is pretty simple:
Do not to let the plants dry out.
They can’t stand overly dry conditions, so they need to be kept well-watered.
Too much fertilizer can interfere with color and cause stem elongation, so fertilizing kale at planting time should be enough.
Use a balanced fertilizer (ratio 3-1-2 or 1-1-1) with micro-nutrients.
Cut off flower stems as soon as they appear.
Pests and diseases are pretty much the same as those that affect edible kale and are treated accordingly.
