The Q&A Archives: decorative cabbage

Question: I planted some decorative/ornamental cabbage last October and it's still thriving. Do I leave it in my flower beds, do I trim it down, or do I need to pull it out? Does is come back in the fall again?

Answer: Jennifer,

It won't look very good much longer with the arrival of heat. If you think it still looks okay you can leave it a little longer, but it won't be a perennial to carry over from year to year.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
