Decorative Cabbage

Good morning,

There isn't much happening in the outside garden right now, but I did spot these decorative cabbages when we were out recently.
They add such pretty color when everything else is brown!

Enjoy,
Lois

Nice! Can you believe it, in Rochester, NY at the end of December and the grass is still green??? There has been NO measurable snow at all. Unbelievable.

Many office parks around here, use the decorative cabbage and pansies for an eye-catching display.

they are pretty - and must be hardy too!

I have never seen them in the ground, only in pots! Hope you had a lovely Christmas

I really do like ornamental cabbage, but then so do the moose, and they will trample everything around to get to the cabbage. I haven't planted it in a long while, but perhaps I can figure out a spot where I can put some in away from everything else. It might create some good photo ops.

Interesting! We get them planted in containers around public buildings here and they can be very eye-catching.

We've never planted any of these in our gardens, but they sure do add some nice color when nothing else is blooming.
