Ornamental Kale Chidori Red Seeds

Ornamental Kale Chidori Red Seeds

Brassica oleracea (hybrid)

Item #1266

Annual. Increasingly popular in fall gardens for its beauty and cold hardiness. Beautiful grown in garden pathways where you can see down into its ruffled centers. It’s a lovely complement to chrysanthemums, asters, and pansies. Though it will grow in spring, it will have better color and longer performance in the cool weather of fall. Excellent container plant. (Foliage makes a lovely garnish, but is generally not eaten due to toughness and strong flavor.)
