Brassica oleracea 'Osaka Mix'

Flowering Cabbage

Grown for their brightly-colored rosettes of leaves, Ornamental Cabbages and Kales are related to their vegetable counterparts. Marbled, veined or edged in contrasting colors of rose, pink, white, cream and bluish-green, the leaf colors intensify toward the center of the plant. The yellow flowers are inconspicuous. In comparison, flowering Kale have looser heads and curlier, fringed leaves. Excellent for fall bedding or containers, leaf colors intensify after first frost. Plants are good in combination with other fall flowers, such as Asters, Cyclamen and Chrysanthemum. Can last through mild winters, but forms a long unsightly flowering stalk in warm weather. Watch for cabbage pests, including cabbage worm, cabbage lopper and aphids.
