Red and White Ornamental KaleOrnamental Kale thrive in the cool temperatures of fall and winter, but they do not like the summer heat. These showy plants have exceptional cold hardiness and can survive temperatures as low as 5 degrees if acclimated gradually. That means that you can have color in your garden all winter long.

One note of identification is kale has fancier, more ruffled foliage and ornamental cabbage has rounder, more even foliage.

    I need to eat kale as I have macular degeneration and the Dr. told me I should eat it everyday if possible. I’ve been looking for a place I can buy the plants to no avail. Could you please help me? Thank you kindly……
