Ornamental Cabbage (aka Brassica Oleacea)

  • Location:

    I am originally from the UK
  • Looks:

    I look like a cabbage! Yet my colours can be more varied than the varieties you eat and richer in intensity
  • Height:

    I grow to about 15cm but will have a wider spread of 35cm
  • Environment:

    Full sun or partial shade is good for me. I will provide great colour in your pots and borders in the grey dreary months of the year
  • Flowers:

    I don't flower, it is my leaves that provide the attraction
  • Grooming:

    Just pull off any tatty leaves close to my base should you need to
  • Life Span:

    I will only last one season
  • Feeding:

    No need to feed me
  • Fact:

    The colours of my leaves usually intensify after the first frost
