I posted on Sunday about how beautiful the flowering kale is in my front flowerbed after our cold weather. Every year at this time I notice flowering kale all over the place and make a mental note to plant some in the spring, then I completely forget until this time of the year. I must add them to my spring seed buying list so I don’t forget next year. I want to plant this particular variety.
I purchased these beauties at Local Roots in Wooster last Friday, they were only 5/$1. Since I can’t have them blooming in my garden I’m more than happy to have them brightening up my dining room.
I love that they look like roses, only I think they’re much prettier than roses. I believe they’re White Crane flowering kale, I found some seeds over at Territorial Seeds Company, a place I don’t mind doing business with. I’m thinking I would love to grow a few extras so I can incorporate them into my Christmas decorations, both inside and out.
One of the best features of a cut flower like this, is that they last forever in a vase. These should last a few weeks or more, that’s a lot of beauty for only $1!
