Ornamental Kale


This ornamental kale looks so interesting to me - ready for someone to paint it! They are like cabbages without heads ( yikes!) but rather have leaves in tight rosettes. They immigrated here from Japan in 1929 when our US Department of Agriculture sent someone there to search for new plants. I guess the government thought we were somehow lacking!
