Red Kale

75% of seeds I planted germinated quickly (9), all of the second planting sprouted (3), and all are growing well at this point.

A fall must-have plant!

Love, love this flowering kale! Have used it in my borders for the last 4 years, every year planting more. I start it 6-8 weeks before planting out, it looks good all year, then turns spectacular in the fall when it carries the entire garden. Groups of 3-5 staggered around the main garden are wonderful!

A very beautiful addition to my garden. I used the leaves in flower arrangements well in to the fall. Had the deer not devoured the head, it would have been my last flower arrangement before winter.
