They are a great shape, full of interest. Camillia, sorry, they are purely ornamental and inedible.

These are lovely.We went to my uncles funeral yesterday and I always make a wreath if we are going to a cemetary. I found white cabbage "flowers" in Aldi so used three in the arrangement. They looked great with chrysanthemums, roses and carnations. I think they willlast longer than most flowers too.

Grazie mille, David!! Many Thanks for naming those wonderful hostas for me! :-))

Hi Scotsgran - sorry to learn about your uncle's passing :-(

Am sure that the ornamental kale will last longer than a lot of foliage, and the colour mix sounds wonderful!! Take care! :-))

Thank you David. It was a shock to lose this larger than life 86 year young Uncle. He would have been very pleased with his funeral. we will miss him but we will remember him with lots of happy memories.
