Winter is here and so is the kale obsession!
We saw it last year - kale flowers were seen in almost every florist shop, sold as decorative bunches at most farmer’s markets and included in many a bride’s wedding bouquet.
Lucky for us the trend is back in 2020 and we get to enjoy these beautiful blooms yet again! They only bloom for a short time so make sure you get your hands on a limited-edition ornamental kale arrangement. Find the perfect floral gift for them (or yourself) kale flowers from deep purples right through to bright greens and creamy whites!
Your recipient will just love these, they look perfect in a vase alone or mixed in with other flowers.
Kale flowers are just so versatile. They looks absolutely stunning, they have a beautiful thick yet flexible stem that is easy to cut, they have so many leaves on it that it looks full and luscious all the time, they last a lot longer than other blooms in a bouquet, they’re a great stand-alone flower and a great filler too.
Ornamental kale is actually foliage, a rosette of central leaves that lose their chlorophyll as the temperature drops, changing from green to white, pink and deep purple.
Ornamental kale is edible, though it isn’t grown for its taste. If you do decide to try it, it’s actually high in dietary fibre, Vitamins A, C, K, and B6, iron, magnesium, phosphorus and calcium!
