The Q&A Archives: Flowering Cabbage

Question: Is there such a plant as an ornamental plant known as a flowering cabbage or a flowering cauliflower?

Answer: Flowering cabbage and flowering kale are grown for their highly ornamental, highly colored leaf rosettes, which look like giant peonies in deep blue-green marbled and edged with white, cream, rose or purple. Kale differs from cabbage in that its head is slightly looser and leaf edges are more heavily fringed. Both are cool-season plants, often used in containers outdoors for winter color. Foliage is edible and sometimes used in salads.
