Ornamental Cabbages and Kales look much the same as their edible cousins, but the ruffled foliage is much fancier and more colorful. Brassica plants do not tolerate summer heat well, but are extremely cold-tolerant.

Planting and care

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. Although 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.

Caring for Ornamental Cabbage

    Although Kale and Ornamental Cabbage seeds can be sown indoors at any time of the year, without cool temperatures the plants won t attain much color. For starting seeds indoors, I recommend that they be sown directly into a large 6-8 inch pot, to avoid the problems associated with transplanting.Ornamental Cabbages and Kales look much the same as their edible cousins, but the ruffled foliage is much fancier and more colorful. Brassica plants do not tolerate summer heat well, but are extremely cold-tolerant. They can survive winter temperatures as low as 5° F. if they are gradually acclimatized. While a sudden cold snap can be deadly, light and moderate frosts will intensify the brilliant coloring of these plants.
