The most common question I get is can I actually eat my Ornamental Kale or Ornamental Cabbage??? The answer is yes...but I make sure you have something strong to wash is down with, so my answer is I do not recommend it. It is though the perfect plant for your garden to add some color. Ornamental Kale has frost resistant foliage and the colors actually become more intense during the colder seasons.
Plant your Ornamental Kale in full sun to part shade.
Water ornamental kale only when the soil dries out about one inch below the top of the soil
For huge cabbage heads fertilize your ornamental kale during the spring time before it gets too hot.
