Who would have thought that cabbage could ever be considered as an attractive addition to a yard or flower garden? Ornamental cabbage, otherwise known as flowering kale is a well-sought-after addition to yards and annual gardens in many cool weather locations. It grows best in cooler climates. The cooler temperatures in autumn bring out the beautiful colors, and when other annual flowers and plants are fading away ornamental cabbage will still be a colorful eye-catching addition to a yard or garden. The colors of the leaves are brilliant and extremely vivid, and their design is tremendously exquisite and ornate. The foliage is lacy and highly detailed. Ornamental cabbage makes an eye-catching annual addition to flower gardens and yards.
