Flowering Cabbage and Ornamental Kale are two very versatile plants that stand up to our winters fairly easy and offer a variety of uses.
A leafy plant in shades of pinks, reds, and whites with green edges add a contrast and help accent your Pansy beds. One advantage of Cabbage and Kale is that they are able to be planted in shade or full sun.
Cabbage normally have smoother flatter leaves while Kale have a more distinct ruffle edge on the leaves.
Cabbage and Kale both are more rounded and dome shaped: 15-18" Tall x 15-18" wide
Peacock Series: serrated leaves with texture adding a little extra height: 18-24" Tall x 12-18" Wide
RedBor Kale: this variety turns eggplant deep rich dark purple as the winter sets in, also adds the most height and mass in the bed. 26-36" tall x 18-26" wide
* Some severe winters may freeze the cabbage and kale out, although most seasons we have no problems.

It is good for spring, summer, fall and winter. Sun and shade.
With it's silvery soft foliage it accents your other flowers very nicely.

Although replacing it every few years may present a nicer look, as the trimmed plant never really recovers to its best shape.

Rich bold tropical leaves that can thrive in our summer sun, or partial shade. Too much dense shade will allow for less color on the leaves.
Perfect in a container or in a garden bed to accent just about any bedding plant. Care free and very low maintenance enhance the brilliant colors..
Although we use this plant extensively for spring and summer, the colors offer a great accent for the Autumn landscape as well bringing the reds, golds and bronze colors into the fall plantings. However it can not take a frost, it can be brought inside for the winter and makes a fantastic house plant.
Although this is the Fall and Winter Annual section these Garden Mums are Perennial.
Mums begin to come ready for sale in September.
Planting Mums that are "tight" ( like the first pic) not opened all the way yet, will allow for longer bloom life in your beds.
Planting Mums in the fall is a great way to change the season. They normally last in bloom about eight weeks with a spectacular display of color.
The nice thing about the garden mum is that they come back year after year to give your garden a blast of color in the fall.
Mums die back to the ground during the Winter. They begin to re-sprout early in the spring.
Some mums may try to bloom during the spring months in our climate.
This is fine, although for a true Fall Color Display trim all bud, blooms, and elongated stems around mid June, to promote re-budding and timing for the full Fall impact.
