Brassica ornamental kale

My daughter called round with a beautiful bunch of flowers this morning including what I thought were roses but are Brassica ornamental Kale , very pretty but strange , it will be interesting to see how long they last compared to the rest of the flowers in the bunch

I love these. I bought them , cut them and put them in a vase. No one believed these were Kale.

Will do Dd , How long did yours last for Klahanie ? Chris I looked them up and it seems you can buy seeds to grow them ,makes you wonder if they are going to far in altering plant structure ...

They are beautiful to look at Amy but make sure all leaves are removed from below the waterline in your vase or the smell won't be very nice.

Thats a good tip Thorneyside I noticed how cabbagey they smelt when I cut the ends off ...

Very pretty kale, just something a bit for different for the vase.

Lovely to have flowers bought Amy..:)
I used to buy these for winter interest in pots and tubs.
Yours are the first I've seen in years...

Lucky you, flowers! I think these ornamental kale and cabbages are really pretty. I've seen them in planters etc but not in a bunch of flowers before. I'd also be interested to know how long they last.

Lovely to see these ornamental kale in a bunch of flowers! I've seen them in two supermarkets before.

Our local council planted a lot up in the flowerbeds around Huntingdon last year & they look quite nice all winter giving colour even though they aren't.

Many years ago in Madrid I saw them being used as an edging to flowerbeds near to where my sister-in-law used to live. They looked very effective & I think that was the first time I'd seen them in planting displays.

It will be interesting to see how long they last you.

I popped into a supermarket this morning and caught sight of a lovely bouquet with ornamental kale added - thought of yours Amy!
