Crystal Red Ornamental Kale (Brassica oleracea) is what everyone is talking about for the winter garden and early spring season. Its leaves like the blush of cool weather, enhancing the vibrance of colors in the center turning purple-magenta. Place them in odd numbers as winter annuals in your landscape, garden containers, and window boxes! They grow 6"-10" and team handsomely with other winter flowering plants!
