Brassica oleracea Good ornamental for our climate. The colors—green outer leaves and pink, white or purple centers—deepen at the onset of chilly autumnal nights. Start indoors 5–7 weeks before setting out in midsummer for fall maturity. While weather is still hot, sidedress with manure so the plants will make rapid growth before nights begin cooling. As autumn approaches, withhold nitrogen to speed coloring. 10". Biennial grown as an annual. ③
