Ornamental Kale (Brassica Oleracea), Non GMO, open pollinated. 

Minimum 25 seeds per package. Update 4/22/2023. 

Ornamental cabbage and kale look and grow very much like their close relatives, the edible cabbages and kales.
Although they're categorized as the same species (Brassica oleracea) as the edible varieties and can be eaten, these ornamental cultivars have been bred for looks, not flavor. They are slightly bitter, though are often used as a garnish. Their leaves form rosettes of purple, rose, and creamy white colors, making them look more like large flowers than vegetables.

Ornamental Kale provides beautiful ornamental color from early fall well into winter with frilly green outer leaves and pink, white or purple centers. These cold hardy annuals easily establish from Ornamental Kale seeds, and as the rest of the flowers in the garden are dying down, Brassica Kale is just getting started! It takes the cool weather for Ornamental Kale to start showing their true colors.
Grow in fertile, well-drained, preferably lime-rich (alkaline) soil in full sun.
