Decorative Cabbage & Kale are considered among the best of all the wonderful cool-season plants, they produce foliage in brilliant, colorful shades of lavender, green, purple, pink and white. They last from October or November through April (depending on your zone), bringing the winter garden alive. These plants are native to the Mediterranean and are indeed related to broccoli, cauliflower, collards and another terrific ornamental stock. The plants are a lot tougher than you may have thought -- once acclimated by cool weather, cabbage and kale can withstand temperatures in the mid-teens. The Chicago Botanic Garden has actually seen them survive minus-10 degrees. Select a site in full sun with fertile, organic-rich soil.
