5 Nagoya flowering kale


BRASSICA OLERACEA, ANNUAL Ornamental flowering kale’s ruffled, feathered leaves are just as pretty as a traditiona­l bloom. The veggie grows well in full sun and works best in fall containers if it’s planted by early July. It’s a true biennial but is usually treated as an annual. It can survive winter in some places, but many think it’s unsightly.

Why we love it:

The compact head of kale looks lovely when planted with pansy and viola.
