Colorful, Cool-Weather Ornamental Kale 

If your yard can use a little color and stunning shape, the Ornamental Kale is a perfect choice! This plant, sometimes called the “flowering kale,” is part of the cabbage and kale family. And although you can eat it, it’s more bitter than its counterparts.

Fret not, this ornamental plant packs a serious punch in gorgeous hues and its ruffled and feathered leaves! It comes in a variety of colors, from red to purple and white, so take your pick! 

Another awesome benefit of this plant? It develops in cool weather, meaning you can enjoy its brilliant display in those fall and winter months! Its cold-hardiness makes it a great plant for most environments.

While the Ornamental Kale is resistant (and even thrives) in cold weather, it’s also a low-maintenance plant! It relies on minimal care to deliver on its long-lasting display.

You can plant this in containers, borders, or as annuals in your gardens. It also works well as a sensational statement piece! Set it apart or mix it in with your other plants.

If you’re ready to transform your yard, order your own Ornamental Kale today!

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Place your ornamental kale in a sunny area in your home or yard. While you can plant them in the ground to enjoy for multiple seasons, many people use them as a fall-blooming annual and keep them in pots around their porch, patio or entryway.

2. Watering: Water your plants once or twice a week, depending on how dry the soil is. You'll want to keep the soil consistently moist, but not overwatered.

3. Pruning: To prolong your blooms, you can deadhead often, as wilted blooms start to die off. Prune any wilting or dead blooms, as well as dead stems, to keep your ornamental kale looking good longer.
